The excise, or liquor, policy case refers to the Aam Aadmi Party government’s new rules for selling liquor in the national capital. Lt Governor VK Saxena has recommended a CBI probe into the corruption allegations. VK Saxena demanded legal action against AAP leaders on corruption charges.

Sisodia, who is in charge of the Delhi government’s excise department, was named as the primary accused in the First Information Report (FIR) filed in August amid allegations of deliberate procedural lapses in tendering for liquor licenses in 2021-22 that gave undue benefits to some.
