Delhi liquorgate accused Dinesh Arora turns witness, trouble mounts for AAP & Sisodia
Businessman Dinesh Arora – who the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) said is a close aide of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia — is set to turn into an approver in the liquor policy case. He approached the Delhi Rouse Avenue court and said he will reveal all the truth about his role in the case.
Dinesh Arora appeared in court on Monday and said he is ready to become a government witness voluntarily. “I will place all the facts related to this matter before the court,” said Arora.
This came after the CBI filed a petition in the Delhi court seeking to turn Arora into an approver in the case. He was released on bail after the probe agency said it did not oppose his release as he revealed important information about the case during his interrogation.
As per the charges listed by the CBI, Sisodia’s aide Dinesh Arora had allegedly collected illegal benefits from liquor licensing and also distributed illegal benefits. He is one of the accused in the overall case among several others. He is also charged with accepting an Rs.1 crore bribe from businessman Sameer Mahendru.
The probe agency had said that Sameer Mahendru, the director of Indospirits, transferred an amount of Rs.1 crore to Radha Industries, managed by Dinesh Arora.
Earlier, the CBI in its FIR said that Amit Arora, Dinesh Arora, and Arjun Pandey were “close associates” of Manish Sisodia, and were actively involved in managing and diverting the money collected from liquor licensees. Sisodia is the prime accused in the case.
