No relief to Manish Sisodia, judicial custody extended till May 31

The judicial custody of Aa Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and former deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, has been extended by the Rouse Avenue court until May 31. 

Sisodia has been in custody since February 2023, related to the Delhi liquor policy case. 

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was arrested in connection with a money laundering probe associated with the previously revoked liquor policy. Kejriwal is presently on interim bail to participate in campaigning for his party during the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

Delhi HC likely to deliver its verdict on Sisodia's bail pleas 

Separately, the Delhi high court is likely to deliver its verdict on Sisodia's bail pleas linked to money laundering and corruption cases lodged by the ED and CBI respectively.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma is expected to pronounce the orders on both bail pleas at 5 pm today, according to the cause list uploaded on the high court’s website.

On May 14, the Delhi high court reserved its order on Manish Sisodia's please after hearing the arguments of the Aam Aadmi Party, CBI and the Enforcement Directorate.


Last week, ED named the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as an accused as it filed a money laundering charge sheet against Arvind Kejriwal in the excise policy case.

The ED and CBI have opposed releasing Manish Sisodia on bail, claiming concerted efforts by the accused to delay the process of framing charges.
