ED summons AAP MLA Durgesh Pathak in Delhi’s excise policy scam

Published

on


New Delhi: In a more recent development regarding the Delhi excise policy scam, the Enforcement Directorate has convened in charge of the party’s MCD poll Aam Aadmi and Rajinder Nagar MLA Durgesh Pathak.

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia tweeted Monday morning that the ED had summoned Pathak and criticized the investigative agency, asking if the aim was to attack MCD polling rather than alcohol policy.

“Their target is excise policy or the upcoming MCD election,” Sisodia tweeted.

The ED has not commented on the matter as of now.

The case is based on the FIR of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The CBI has made Sisodia the number one defendant in its FIR. The CBI FIR has been filed under sections 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) and 477-A (Falsification of Accounts) of the IPC. The accusations against Sisodia are that alcoholic beverage entrepreneurs were allegedly given a waiver of Rs 30 crore. The license holders were allegedly granted an extension at their own will. The policy rules were made in violation of the excise rules.

He also said that Sisodia and some liquor barons were active in managing and diverting improper pecuniary advantage collected from liquor licensees to public servants, who have been charged in the case.

“Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Arva Gopi Krishna, the then Commissioner (Excise), Anand Tiwari, the then Deputy Commissioner (Excise), and Pankaj Bhatnagar, Deputy Commissioner (Excise) were instrumental in recommending and making decisions related to the excise policy for the year 2021-22 without the approval of the competent authority with the intention of granting undue favors to the licensees after the bidding”, reads the FIR, which was accessed by IANS.

kyiv: A senior government official in kyiv has revealed that up to 13,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed since Russia launched its ongoing war on February 24.

Speaking to Ukrainian media on Thursday, Mykhailo Podolyak, an adviser to President Volodymyr Zelensky, said: “We have official assessments from the General Staff, official assessments from the commander-in-chief (Zelensky), and they range from 10,000 to 12,500-13,000 dead.” reported the BBC

He said the number of civilians killed could also be “significant”

Podolyak further suggested that as many as 100,000 Russian soldiers had been killed since the invasion began, and that between 100,000 and 150,000 more had been wounded, missing, or unable to return to combat.

However, the Ukrainian military has not confirmed the count given by Podolyak.

The latest figures come after Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said last month that around 100,000 Russian and 100,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been killed or wounded to date.

But the last update from Moscow in September said that only 5,937 soldiers had been killed since the start of the war.

The US general had also pointed out that between 15 and 30 million refugees have been created since Russia launched its invasion.

The UN has registered 7.8 million people as refugees from Ukraine across Europe, including Russia.
