The Enforcement Directorate on Thursday raided the premises of Delhi Minister and AAP leader Raaj Kumar Anand as part of a money laundering investigation, official sources said, ahead of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's questioning by the agency today.

Raaj Kumar Anand, 57, is the minister for social welfare and SC/ST welfare among others in the Arvind Kejriwal-led government. He is an MLA from Patel Nagar. He was allocated to education and health ministries after Manish Siisodia and Satyendar Jain's resignations early this year. Later, education was given to Atishi and health to Saurabh Bharadwaj.
Manish Sisodia, Satyendar Jain, and AAP MP Sanjay Singh are currently incarcerated due to various crimes, coinciding with the searches.
Kejriwal is scheduled to be questioned on a money laundering investigation related to Delhi's liquor policy, it is not yet known if the raids on Minister Raaj Kumar Anand's property by the ED had anything to do with it. The searches were related to a money-laundering investigation, according to the ED.
