"They had carried out raids at my home and office, searched my bank locker…. even went to go and search my village. They did not find anything against me… and won't be able to as I have done nothing wrong. I have honestly worked to serve the education sector for the children in Delhi," Sisodia further stressed.

It can be seen that the investigation in the Delhi excise policy case began in 2022 after Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena recommended a CBI probe, citing discrepancies.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has suggested multiple times that probe agencies were carrying out the investigation on the behest of the rival BJP.

He has also said that hundreds of officers were engaged over months but nothing was found in the case. The investigation began months ahead of the crucial elections in Gujarat and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) polls; and the AAP had linked the investigation to the elections.

It had also said that the BJP was trying to topple an elected government in the national capital by using central agencies. Kejriwal had also claimed that attempts were made to approach his party's MLAs while the BJP accused the AAP of corruption.
