Supreme Court Denies to Entertain Manish Sisodia’s Bail Pleas

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Tuesday denied to entertain the bail pleas of AAP leader Manish Sisodia in the cases lodged by the CBI and the ED in connection with the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam.

The apex court, however, said Sisodia can revive his petitions for bail after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) file their final prosecution complaint and charge sheet, respectively, in the cases involving alleged corruption and money laundering.

A prosecution complaint is the ED’s equivalent of a charge sheet.

A vacation bench of the Supreme Court noted the submissions of the ED and the CBI, that they would file their final prosecution complaint and charge sheet by July 3.

Sisodia had moved the apex court challenging the Delhi High Court’s May 21 verdict which dismissed his bail pleas in the cases probed by the two central agencies.

Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26, 2023. He resigned from the Delhi cabinet on February 28, 2023.

The ED arrested him in the money laundering case stemming from the CBI FIR on March 9, 2023.
