ED conducts 35 raids across 3 states on Delhi Excise Policy scam

NEW DELHI: In connection with Delhi's Excise Policy Scam, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is conducting raids in 35 locations across three states.

The raids, which began early on Friday, are continuing in Delhi, Punjab, and Andhra Pradesh, said ED sources. They found linkages between Punjab and Andhra Pradesh in the case while questioning Sameer Mahendru, an accused who is currently in the custody of the central agency.

Raids are being conducted by several teams in Hyderabad in the offices of a few manufacturers and businessmen who are either directly or indirectly connected to the scandal.

Mahendru was previously taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate. It was the first arrest by the ED and the second arrest related to the Excise Policy fraud. An ED representative wasn't available to comment on the situation.

The central agency is conducting raids in relation to the Excise Policy Scam for the third time. It has raided about 100 venues so far.

There are claims that Vijay Nair, the accused public worker, received improper financial benefits from Mahendru through Arun Ramchandra Pillai, a resident of Hyderabad's Kokapet area.

To follow the money trail in money laundering, the investigation agency is now collecting documentary and digital evidence. By attempting to uncover the layering of laundered money, the ED is attempting to build a solid case.
