May 21, 2024 1:42 PM.

Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court today extended till 31st May judicial custody of former Deputy Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia in a money laundering case linked to excise policy scam. The matter will now be heard on 31st of this month. Sisodia has been in judicial custody since February 26 last year after he was arrested by the CBI. Later, he was arrested by the ED.

Both ED and CBI opposed any relief to Sisodia on the ground that there are concerted efforts by the accused to delay the process of framing charges in the cases.

Bail plea of Sisodia is also pending before Delhi High Court, which had on May 14 reserved its order after hearing arguments on behalf of the AAP leader, CBI and ED.
