Delhi liquor scam: ED files chargesheet, mentions offenses in 3000 pages

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed its first charge sheet in a money laundering case in Delhi's much-talked-about liquor scam case. Liquor baron Sameer Mahendru has been named as an accused in the case. Media reports quoted ED officials as saying that apart from Mahendru, two other persons have also been included in the list in the prosecution complaint. The chargesheet runs into nearly 3,000 pages, recording the statements of the accused.

According to the report, officials have said that sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) have been invoked in the chargesheet. The agency has said in the charge sheet that 169 search operations have been conducted so far in the investigation. The case was filed after taking cognizance of a CBI FIR registered on the recommendation of Delhi Lieutenant Governor (LG) VK Saxena. The CBI probe was recommended on the results of the Delhi chief secretary's report filed in July.  

The report showed prima facie violation of the GNCTD Act 1991, Trade Rules (TOBR)-1993, and Delhi Excise Act-2009. So far, the ED has arrested a total of five people in this case. Sameer Mahendru was nabbed by the ED on September 27 after questioning.
