“Trust My Boy,” Arvind Kejriwal Told Businessman: New Charge In Liquor Case
An accused in the Delhi Liquor scam — Aam Aadmi Party communications in-charge Vijay Nair — had arranged a FaceTime video call from his phone between Sameer Mahendru, chief of Indospirits and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Enforcement Directorate has alleged in a new chargesheet. On behalf of AAP leaders, Vijay Nair received Rs 100 crore from the “South group” as advance for licenses in Delhi liquor policy, the agency has alleged.
The chargesheet, which has been accessed by NDTV, also claims that Mr Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party used the money from liquor scam for its campaign in Goa.
Cash payments to the tune of 70 lakhs were made to volunteers of the survey teams, the agency has alleged.
The “South Group” comprised Kavitha of Telangana’s ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Magunta Srinivasalu Reddy, an MP from Andhra Pradesh’s ruling YSR Congress, and Sarath Reddy of Aurobindo Pharma, the agency has alleged.
“Vijay is my boy, you should trust him and carry on with him”, Mr Kejriwal had apparently told Sameer Mahendru, the Enforcement Directorate has claimed.
