Manish Sisodia’s judicial custody extended by Delhi Court

Manish Sisodia, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and a former deputy chief minister of the nation’s capital, has had his judicial custody extended by the Rouse Avenue court in Delhi until May 31.

Since February 2023, Manish Sisodia has been detained by the court in relation to the Delhi liquor policy case.

Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, who was his boss, was also detained in relation to a money laundering investigation that was connected to the now-canceled liquor policy. He is currently free until June 2 under interim bail.

On Manish Sisodia’s bail requests related to the money laundering and corruption cases filed by the ED and CBI, respectively, the Delhi High Court is anticipated to rule soon.

According to the cause list posted on the high court’s website, Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma is anticipated to make the decisions on both bail requests at 5:00 p.m. today.

The Delhi High Court heard arguments from the Aam Aadmi Party, the CBI, and the Enforcement Directorate on May 14 and then reserved its decision regarding Manish Sisodia’s pleas.

When the ED filed a new charge sheet against Arvind Kejriwal in the excise policy case last week, it included the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as an accused party.

The ED and CBI have opposed Manish Sisodia’s release on bail, alleging that the accused has been working together to delay the filing of charges.

AAP leaders are accused by the CBI and Enforcement Directorate of receiving bribes from a group of politicians and businessmen in exchange for favorably wording the excise policy. Following Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor’s recommendation that the CBI look into the claims, the policy was abandoned.

According to the ED, the accused used a sizable amount of the bribes to finance the AAP’s 2022 Goa assembly elections.
