Delhi Court Grants Three-Day Interim Bail to AAP Leader Manish Sisodia for Niece's Wedding

Today, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi approved a three-day interim release for senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia. This bail was sanctioned to enable Sisodia's attendance at his niece's wedding.

Special Judge M. K. Nagpal granted relief to Sisodia from February 13 to February 15 in the corruption and money laundering cases under investigation by the CBI and ED, respectively.

Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26, 2023, over suspicions of corruption linked to the formulation and execution of the Delhi Excise Policy 2021–22, which has since been annulled. Following this, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested him on March 9 while he was in Tihar jail, in connection with a money laundering case associated with the same matter. Sisodia resigned from the Delhi cabinet on February 28, as he held the excise portfolio and was deemed accountable for the issues under scrutiny.

The Delhi government initially introduced its new excise policy on November 17, 2021. However, by the conclusion of September 2022, the policy had been retracted amidst accusations of corruption. Investigating agencies claim that the implementation of the new policy resulted in a surge in wholesalers' profit margins from 5 percent to 12 percent. This allegedly facilitated cartelization and the preferential treatment of unqualified candidates for liquor licenses, all purportedly for financial advantages.

Both the Delhi government and Sisodia have consistently refuted these allegations, asserting that the new policy aimed to enhance the city government's revenue.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) contends that there were purported irregularities in both the formulation and execution of the excise policy for the years 2021–22. Following earlier questioning on October 17 of the preceding year, Sisodia faced a subsequent round of interrogation on February 26. Subsequently, a chargesheet pertaining to the matter was submitted on November 25, 2022.
