Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court, on Saturday, April 6, extended AAP leader and former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, Manish Sisodia’s judicial custody till Thursday, April 18, in the Delhi excise policy case. Sisodia’s judicial custody was extended by Special Judge Kaveri Baweja, after he was produced in the court as the judicial custody granted earlier came to an end. AAP leader Sanjay Singh, who was granted bail in the matter was also present for the court proceedings.

It was on February 26, 2023, that Sisodia was arrested by the CBI for his alleged role in the Delhi excise policy scam, and then he was arrested by the ED on March 9, 2023, in a money laundering case, stemming from the CBI FIR.

A day prior to this bail hearing, Manish Sisodia had written a letter, addressed to the people of his constituency Patparganj in East Delhi, in which he compared the BJP government at the centre with the British Raj, and equated himself with the freedom fighters, wrongfully incarcerated.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also under judicial custody till April 15 in Tihar Jail, in the matter, and unlike Sisodia, the AAP national convenor did not step down from his post.
