New Delhi9 minutes ago
CBI has issued a lookout circular against Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia on Sunday. According to reports, apart from Sisodia, a circular has also been issued against 13 others. They have been banned from leaving the country. He may be arrested soon.
Manish Sisodia tweeted after the lookout circular was issued. Sisodia wrote – All your raids have failed, nothing was found, not a single penny misappropriation, now you have issued a lookout circular that Sisodia is not being found. What is this gimmick, Modi ji? I am roaming freely in Delhi, tell me where to come? I can’t find you?
Kejriwal said – the game of CBI-ED starts every morning
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted – At a time when common man is fighting against inflation, crores of youth are unemployed. The central government along with all the state governments should fight unemployment and inflation. Instead every morning they start this game of CBI-ED. How will the country progress like this?
What is a Lookout Circular, why is it issued?
Lookout is a circular issued by the investigating officers. The circular is issued to ensure that the person named in the criminal case does not flee the country. Recently, Kolkata Police had issued a lookout circular against former BJP leader Nupur Sharma.
FIR is registered against Sisodia in these 3 sections
According to the CBI FIR, a case has been registered against Manish Sisodia under Section 120B, 477A of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption. Of these, the ED can join the investigation on both Section 120B of the IPC and Section 7 of the PC Act. Both these sections come under the Scheduled Offenses under PMLA.
Sisodia’s house was raided on August 19 under the leadership of the Deputy Director of CBI.
CBI sources claimed that only six days after the Lt Governor’s (LG) approval to the new excise policy, the changes were made by Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisadia. This was done without LG’s knowledge. LG approved on 24 May 2021. But on 31 May 2021, at the behest of Sisodia, some rules were changed in it.
ED will be entered, CBI investigation will also continue
Due to the registration of a case under Section 120B of the IPC and Section 7 of the PC Act i.e. PMLA, now the Enforcement Directorate (ED) will also have an entry. ED may soon file money laundering case against Sisodia. At the same time, the investigation of CBI will also continue continuously. This was seen in the recent teacher recruitment scam in West Bengal, when the ED took action on the basis of the CBI’s FIR.
CBI had raided for 14 hours
The CBI had raided the official residence of Manish Sisodia on Friday, August 19. After the raid that lasted for 14 hours, the CBI had confiscated mobiles, laptops and other documents from Sisodia’s house. After the CBI raid, Manish Sisodia had given a statement saying that I can be arrested within 2-4 days.
