SC corrects order: Bansuri Swaraj's name to be deleted from bail granting to Sanjay Singh

In a recent development at the Supreme Court, an order regarding the grant of bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh took a surprising turn as the court ordered the deletion of advocate Bansuri Swaraj's name from its initial order. This decision came after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) acknowledged that Swaraj's inclusion was due to an inadvertent error.

The bench, headed by Justice Sanjiv Khanna, upon hearing the ED's clarification, promptly responded, stating, "Ok, we will correct the order." This course of action followed after Advocate Zoheb Hussain, representing the ED, clarified that Swaraj had no involvement in the case nor did she represent the agency. Hussain further elucidated that Swaraj's name found its way onto the appearance slip due to an inadvertent error.

It's noteworthy that Bansuri Swaraj is also a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate from the New Delhi parliamentary constituency. This association adds a layer of complexity to the situation, given the political landscape in which the case is unfolding.

The genesis of this development lies in the Supreme Court's decision on Tuesday to grant bail to Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh. Singh had been embroiled in a money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy scam. The ED, during the proceedings, expressed no objections to Singh's bail application, leading to the court's decision to grant him bail.

The bench comprising Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Justice Dipankar Datta, and Justice P.B. Varale deemed it fit to release Singh, who had spent six months behind bars in connection with the aforementioned case.

The correction of the order by the Supreme Court to remove Bansuri Swaraj's name highlights the importance of accuracy and diligence in legal proceedings. Such inadvertent errors, although rare, can have significant implications, especially when individuals with political affiliations are involved.
