The Enforcement Directorate on Wednesday conducted fresh searches, including at the premises of some people linked to AAP MP Sanjay Singh, in connection with its probe into the money laundering case linked to alleged irregularities in the Delhi liquor policy matter, officials sources said.
    
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader issued a Twitter video message, saying two of his associates are also being raided by the federal agency.
    
Sources said about four-five entities are being covered under the searches being undertaken under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
    
It is alleged by the ED and the CBI that the Delhi government's excise policy for 2021-22 to grant licences to liquor traders allowed cartelisation and favoured certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it, a charge strongly refuted by the AAP.
    
The policy was subsequently scrapped and the Delhi lieutenant governor recommended a CBI probe, following which the ED registered a case under the PMLA.
