New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is continuing raids at 35 locations in 3 states in connection with the Delhi liquor scam. ED sources said that raids are underway in Delhi, Punjab and Andhra Pradesh since Friday morning. When Samir Mahendru, one of the accused in the custody of the central agency, was interrogated, it was learned that Punjab and Andhra Pradesh were connected in this case.

More gangs in Hyderabad are raiding the establishments of some manufacturers and traders who are directly or indirectly involved in the scam. ED had earlier arrested Mahendru. This was the second arrest in the Excise policy scam case and the first by the ED. ED officials are not ready to comment on the matter.

This is the third time that the central agency has conducted a raid related to excise policy fraud. So far around 100 places have been raided. The investigating agency is now gathering documentary and digital evidence to root out black money in money laundering. ED is trying to complicate the case by trying to bring out the layers of black money.
