The Enforcement Directorate has once again come into full force action regarding the Delhi Excise Policy scam, it seems this time the Enforcement Directorate does not want to leave any stone unturned.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is conducting raids at 35 locations in three states in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy scam.
According to ED sources, raids are on in Delhi, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh, which started early on Friday. During the interrogation of one of the accused, Sameer Mahendru, in the custody of the central agency, he came to know about the connection of Punjab and Andhra Pradesh in this case.
More teams in Hyderabad are raiding the premises of some manufacturers and traders directly or indirectly involved in the scam.
Mahendru was earlier arrested by the ED. This was the second arrest in the Excise Policy scam and the first by the ED.
No ED official was available to comment on the matter.
This is the third time that the central agency is conducting raids in connection with the Excise Policy scam. It has conducted raids at around 100 locations so far.
Now, the investigating agency is collecting documentary and digital evidence to eliminate the money trail in money laundering. The ED is trying to complicate the case by trying to uncover the layers of black money.
Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate had also raided Delhi, but the Enforcement Directorate did not get anything, now they will have to wait for what will come next. PLC/GT
