Manish Sisodia was arrested by CBI on February 26, he is currently in Tihar Jail.
Manish Sisodia’s bail plea in CBI’s Delhi Liquor Policy case will be heard today at 2 pm. On the other hand, on Monday, the court again granted 14-day remand of Sisodia to the CBI. He was arrested by the probe agency on February 26 after eight hours of questioning.
On March 27, the agency produced him in the court. The court sent Sisodia to CBI remand for 7 days (March 4). Then on March 4, the court gave the agency the custody of the former deputy CM for two days (March 6).
At the same time, during the hearing on March 6, the CBI had told the court that Sisodia’s further remand is not being sought, but in the next 15 days, if needed, custody can be sought again. After this, the court sent Sisodia to Tihar Jail in judicial custody for 14 days (March 20). From here he was arrested by ED.
Please inform that both CBI and ED are probing the liquor policy case. Currently, Sisodia is in ED custody till March 22. That is why on Monday, ED presented him in Rouse Avenue Court through video conferencing. After extending the custody till April 3, Special Judge MK Nagpal said that the hearing on Sisodia’s bail would be held on Tuesday, March 21.
ED is analyzing the data received from Sisodia’s mobile
The ED told the court that Sisodia had changed his phone when the LG complained about the matter, but the agency retrieved his mobile data. Now the agency is analyzing the data extracted from his email and mobile phone. Now we have to ask more questions to Sisodia.
ED’s lawyer Zohaib Hussain had said that Sisodia’s assistant Vijay Nair was coordinating the entire conspiracy. Government machinery, middlemen and many others are involved in this scam. This conspiracy was hatched by Nair, Sisodia, Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter. Kavita and many others composed it together. A money trail of Rs 219 crore has been detected in this case.
Sisodia’s lawyer said- ED has now become proxy of CBI
At the same time, Sisodia’s lawyer told the court that the ED has not mentioned any crime against the former deputy CM. The agency has to tell what happened in the process of crime? It is not to say whether the crime took place. Custody is not required for confrontation.
What is the need for ED to inquire when CBI has already inquired into the matter? ED is now working as a proxy agency of CBI.
On the other hand, Sisodia told the court that in the last 7 days of custody, the agency has questioned him only for half an hour daily. He was questioned till late night only on Thursday.
The court has said to hear the bail in the CBI case on getting time. The photo is of March 6, when Sisodia was being taken to Tihar Jail.
