Delhi Excise Policy Case: ED Arrests Chariot Production Media Owner


New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday arrested Rajesh Joshi, the owner of Chariot Production Media Pvt Ltd, in connection with its ongoing probe into Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 money laundering case.

Joshi was arrested under the sections of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The ED has alleged in a charge sheet submitted to the court that a part of the alleged Rs 100 crore “kickbacks” generated in the scrapped Delhi excise policy were “used” in the 2022 Goa assembly election campaign of the CM Arvind Kejriwal-led party.

This is the third arrest in the case in three days.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had arrested a Hyderabad-based chartered accountant, understood to be the auditor of BRS MLC K Kavitha.

Other accused named in the case are– Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, the then excise commissioner Arva Gopi Krishna, deputy commissioner Anand Tiwari and assistant commissioner Pankaj Bhatnagar.
