"There is no raid or search at the premises of Sisodia. The visit of the team is to seek clarification on certain issues relating to the ongoing enquiry," spokesperson R.K. Gaur told IANS.

The agency move comes in the wake of a Preliminary Enquiry it filed on January 18 against Sisodia and some unnamed state government officials to probe alleged irregularities in the 'Talk to AK' campaign. The complaint was filed by the government's Vigilance Department.

According to officials, the Preliminary Enquiry was filed against the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and other government officials as there were allegations of impropriety and violation of rules and regulations in award of work related to the media campaign 'Talk to AK'.

The 'Talk To AK' campaign was an interactive session of the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, through which people could reach out to the AAP leader through social media.
