New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate ( ED ) on Friday sought 10-day custody of aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia in the Delhi liquor excise scam case. The ED moved an application in this regard before Delhi's Rouse Avenue court seeking a production warrant of the arrested AAP leader .
The Rouse Avenue court directed the probe agency to produce Manish Sisodia before it at 2 pm today. Notably, the ED on Thursday again questioned the former deputy chief minister of Delhi in connection with the liquor excise policy scam case. On March 7 also, the probe agency questioned Sisodia.
The AAP leader has been jailed Since February 26. Sisodia is lodged in Tihar Jail in Delhi. Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI ) over alleged irregularities in the Delhi liquor policy. The former Delhi Deputy CM was arrested for alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped excise policy for 2021-22.
The case also includes allegations of a Rs 100 crore bribe paid to AAP leaders for favouring liquor businessmen. Earlier this week, Sisodia was sent to judicial custody till March 20. On March 4, a Delhi Court extended Manish Sisodia's remand till Monday in the case filed by the CBI.
On Friday, A CBI court will also hear the AAP leader's bail plea. The CBI is also investigating possible violations of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) by Sisodia.
The AAP leader was arrested under sections 120 B (criminal conspiracy), 477 A (intent to defraud) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act. On February 27, the Rouse Avenue Court remanded Manish Sisodia to CBI custody till March 4 in the Delhi excise policy scam case.
