Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on January 14 said Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raids are under way at his office in Delhi Secretariat in connection with excise policy-related case

“Today again CBI has reached my office. They are welcome. They raided my house, raided my office, searched my locker, even searched my village. Nothing has been found against me and nothing will be found because I have not done anything wrong. Sincerely worked for the education of the children of Delhi,” Mr. Sisodia tweeted.

Mr. Sisodia is one of the 15 accused named by the agency in its First Information Report (FIR) registered on August 17, alleging multiple irregularities in the formulation and implementation of the now-withdrawn excise policy.
