New Delhi: Former Delhi deputy CM and AAP leader Manish Sisodia’s interim bail plea in the Delhi liquor policy case was rejected by the Delhi High Court on Monday. He had sought bail on the ground of being the sole caretaker of his ailing wife.
Rejecting his bail application, Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma, however, allowed Sisodia to meet his wife in custody for one day as per her convenience between 10 am and 5 pm.
Sisodia was arrested on March 9 and is in judicial custody in the case filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Delhi excise policy case. This excise policy was scrapped in September 2022 amidst allegations of corruption.
On May 30, the court dismissed the bail plea of Sisodia in the excise policy scam being probed by the CBI. In the CBI case, the high court has kept the interim bail plea pending for July.
