CBI, ED Considering Making AAP an Accused in Delhi Excise Policy Case

New Delhi: The CBI and ED told the Supreme Court on Monday that they are thinking of making the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) an accused in the Delhi excise policy cases.

Additional Solicitor General S V Raju told a bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti that the agencies are considering making AAP an accused, invoking legal provisions on “vicarious liability” and section 70 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Raju made the statement while the bench was hearing the bail pleas of AAP leader and former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia.

The investigative agencies have alleged the AAP used the money from the Delhi excise policy scam for campaigning in the Goa assembly elections.
