Delhi Court extends Manish Sisodia’s judicial custody till July 15 in Excise Policy case

On Saturday, July 7, a Delhi court extended the judicial custody of Manish Sisodia, former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, until July 15. Sisodia is involved in a case brought by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) concerning the Excise Policy scam. This extension was reported by Livemint on July 6, 2024.

In a related incident, another prominent Delhi politician, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, also had his judicial custody extended. On Wednesday, July 3, a court in Delhi prolonged Kejriwal's custody until July 12 in a money laundering case associated with the now-defunct Excise Policy of 2021-22. Kejriwal made a virtual appearance before the Rouse Avenue Court. During the session, the court reserved its decision on Kejriwal's request to have his wife present during his medical consultations with a special board at AIIMS, which had been arranged by the court on April 22. The ruling on this matter is expected on Saturday, July 6, 2024.

Previously, on June 26, Kejriwal had been sent to judicial custody following an appeal by the CBI. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor, Kejriwal, has since moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail. His counsel, Rajat Bharadwaj, highlighted the urgency of the matter, asserting that Kejriwal's arrest did not comply with Section 41 of the Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC). The bail application is set to be heard by a bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Tushar Rao Gedela, with a decision expected by Friday.

Kejriwal's legal troubles began when the CBI arrested him on June 26. He has remained in judicial custody at Tihar Jail since then, also facing a related money laundering case filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). This sequence of events traces back to March 21 when Kejriwal was initially detained by the ED. Although he was granted bail by a trial court on June 20, the Delhi High Court later stayed that order, resulting in his continued detention.

These developments are part of broader legal challenges faced by leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party, reflecting ongoing scrutiny and legal battles over alleged corruption and policy violations in Delhi's governance.
