The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to interrogate former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday and record his statement in a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy.
Sources said that the Federal Investigation Agency has made one more arrest in this case. He has detained Hyderabad-based liquor baron Arun Ramachandra Pillai.
ED officials will reach Tihar Jail in the afternoon to record Sisodia’s statement under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
Sisodia was arrested by the CBI in this case last month and he is currently in judicial custody.
Pillai was taken into custody on Monday evening under criminal sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) after prolonged questioning. This is the 11th arrest in this case by the ED.
Sources said Pillai would be produced before a local court, where the ED would seek his custody for questioning.
