New Delhi: Two days after former Delhi Minister Manisha Sisodia was arrested by the CBI, another investigating agency arrested him on Thursday.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested him in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case.
On Tuesday, Sisodia was questioned for 45 minutes by the ED officials inside the Tihar jail and was arrested by the investigating agency today.
Reportedly, Sisodia’s bail plea will be heard at Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court on Friday.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted the ED action is aimed at keeping his party colleague Mr Sisodia “inside at all cost”.
“Manish was first arrested by the CBI. The CBI did not find any evidence, no money was found in the raid. There is a bail hearing tomorrow. Manish would have been released tomorrow. So today ED arrested him. They have only one aim – to keep Manish inside at all cost by creating new fake cases every day. The people are watching. The people will answer,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi this evening.
Sisodia and others face allegations of allowing liquor cartelisation and favouring certain dealers in framing the Delhi liquor policy.
