In a major development, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided the house of Delhi minister Rajkumar Anand on Thursday. The raid is reportedly linked to a hawala transaction and is part of a money laundering investigation. Anand is the second AAP minister to be raided by the ED in recent months. The raids come ahead of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s questioning by the ED in the Delhi liquor scam case.
The ED is searching nine locations linked to Anand, including his residence in Delhi’s Civil Lines area. The agency has not yet released any details about the raid, but it is suspected to be related to a hawala transaction that Anand is alleged to have been involved in.
The raid on Anand’s house has come as a major blow to the AAP government in Delhi. It is also a sign that the ED is intensifying its investigation into the Delhi liquor scam case.
It remains to be seen whether the ED will find any evidence against Anand in the raid. However, the raid itself is a significant development and could have far-reaching consequences for the AAP government in Delhi.
