New Delhi: The Rouse Avenue court in Delhi extended AAP leader and former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia’s judicial custody till May 30 in the CBI’s Delhi Excise Policy case.
Manish Sisodia was arrested twice, first by the CBI on February 26, 2023, and then by the ED on March 9, 2023. The ED charged him with involvement in irregularities in the excise policy, leading to losses for the state exchequer.
Sisodia was taken into custody by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on February 26, 2022, in connection with the drafting and execution of the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22.
Sisodia, who is in judicial custody, had earlier moved Rouse Avenue Court for interim bail on the grounds of poll campaigning.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was also arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in the money laundering case linked to the now-scrapped excise policy. He was granted interim bail recently by the Supreme Court till June 1. Kejriwal, facing charges in the case linked to the alleged excise policy scam, must surrender by June 2, the top court ruled.
Meanwhile, the ED on Tuesday told the Delhi High Court that it will make the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) an accused in the Delhi excise policy scam case. The is the first time that a central agency is going to name a national party as an accused in its chargesheet. Special counsel Zoheb Hossain appearing for ED told the bench of Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma that "Aam Aadmi Party will also be made accused in the case and supplementary chargesheet will be filed."
