Where did the money go?…No proceeds of crime were recovered from any leader, minister or worker of AAP…Arvind Kejriwal was arrested in the same case two days back on the basis of the statement of just one person – Sharat Chandra Reddy. He is the owner of Aurobindo Pharma.”

She further added, “He was summoned on 9th November 2022 for questioning. He clearly said that he never met or spoke with Arvind Kejriwal and has nothing to do with AAP.

He said that he met Arvind Kejriwal and spoke with him over the excise policy matter. He was granted bail as soon as he said that. But where is the money?
