The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has arrested Gautam Malhotra, son of liquor baron and former Akali Dal MLA Deep Malhotra, in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. Deep Malhotra, who owns the liquor manufacturing and distribution company Oasis Group, was raided by ED in October last year in Punjab. His younger son Gautam is said to manage the markets of Delhi and UP, apart from running the group’s distilleries in Ambala and Indore. He was produced before Special Judge MK Nagpal and was remanded to 7-day ED custody “for the purpose of his detailed and extensive interrogation and confrontations”.
