Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court has extended the judicial custody of former deputy CM Manish Sisodia till June 1 in the ED’s case related to the excise policy matter. This development comes after the same court had previously extended Sisodia’s judicial custody till June 2 in the CBI case on Delhi excise policy.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had filed a chargesheet against Manish Sisodia, the AAP leader and former Delhi Deputy CM, in connection with the excise policy issue. The chargesheet alleges that a proceed of the crime of Rs 622 crores was generated due to Sisodia’s activities as Excise Minister. Sisodia was arrested by the ED on March 9 from Tihar Jail and has been accused of being a “key conspirator” in the case.
The Rouse Avenue Court, considering the ED’s case, has now extended Sisodia’s judicial custody till June 1. The court has also directed the jail authorities to consider Sisodia’s request for a chair and table for study purposes. This extension of judicial custody follows the previous extension given in the CBI case.
The extension of Manish Sisodia’s judicial custody in the ED’s case further complicates the excise policy matter. The court’s decision highlights the seriousness of the allegations against Sisodia and the ongoing investigation into the alleged scam.
