A Delhi court dismissed a bail plea of former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Friday in the excise policy case lodged by the CBI. Manish Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation on February 26. After CBI, he was also grilled by the Enforcement Directorate. He is currently in the judicial custody and will be produced before the court on April 3.
Manish Sisodia’s bail plea rejected
A Delhi court on Friday rejected the bail plea of AAP leader Manish Sisodia. He was arrested in a case pertaining to the irregularities in Delhi’s Excise Policy. Special Judge MK Nagpal of Rouse Avenue Court pronounced the order rejecting the bail plea.
In his bail plea, the AAP leader said that extending his custody will yield no results as all the recoveries in the case have already been made.
Manish Sisodia was arrested by CBI in the excise policy case. Later, he was arrested by the ED in the same case. The AAP had strongly criticised his arrest stating fake cases are being filed against him.
“Manish was first arrested by the CBI. It did not find any evidence, no money was recovered in its raid. The hearing on his bail plea will take place tomorrow. He would’ve been granted bail. So, the ED arrested him. They (the government) have only one goal – to keep Manish behind the bars at all costs, and that too by filing fake cases every day. The public will answer,” the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor tweeted in Hindi.
