AAP in its recent statement alleged that the Delhi liquor policy case is solely based on the statements of approvers, many of whom have a "direct connection" with the BJP, like Sharath Reddy.

"The entire country knows that the real Delhi liquor scam took place after ED started its investigation and arrested scam kingpin Sharath Reddy, who later transferred Rs 55 crore of his proceeds from the crime to the BJP via electoral bonds. After two years of investigation and over 500 raids, not a single Rupee or piece of evidence has been recovered from AAP leaders," the party's statement said.

"ED is running a politically motivated investigation and making its case solely based on the statements of approvers, many of whom have a direct connection with the BJP, like Sharath Reddy," it added.

Earlier, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had arrested Singh in the same case. The money laundering case stems from the CBI FIR.
