Officials sources also quoted by the news agency said that Sisodia is misusing his constitutional position even as he is an accused in the alleged Rs 144.36 crore liquor scam.

"Despite being the Kingpin and main accused, mentioned at No. 1 in the ongoing investigations in the Liquor Scam by Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), Enforcement Directorate (ED), EOW and Income Tax, Manish Sisodia tried to blatantly misuse his official position to obtain papers connected with the Scam, from the Excise Department. In doing so, he misused his powers as a Minister, provided through Transaction of Business Rules, 1993 of GNCTD, to call for papers," ANI also said while quoting sources.
