The Enforcement Directorate filed a charge sheet on Saturday against Aam Aadmi Party MP Sanjay Singh in connection with the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case.

The prosecution complaint has been submitted to a local court under various sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act. This marks a supplementary charge sheet in the ongoing case, with the agency having previously filed around five such complaints.

Sanjay Singh, a Rajya Sabha MP affiliated with the AAP, was arrested by the ED in October in connection with this case. The anti-money laundering agency alleged that businessman Dinesh Arora, an accused in the case, delivered Rs 2 crore in cash at the residence of the Rajya Sabha MP in two installments. Singh has vehemently denied this claim.

This arrest is part of the ED's money laundering probe linked to the 2021-22 Delhi Excise policy case. Singh is the second high-profile leader, following former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, to be held in connection with this case.

The AAP, which governs Delhi, has characterized these arrests and the case as a "political witch-hunt." According to the ED's investigation, Arora allegedly handed over Rs 2 crore in cash to Singh on two occasions, with each installment amounting to Rs 1 crore. The transactions reportedly took place between August 2021 and April 2022.
