Notice to ED-CBI on Manish Sisodia’s bail plea, next hearing to be held on May 8

The Delhi High Court on May 3 sought response from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the plea of ​​former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia seeking bail in corruption and money laundering cases. Justice Swarn Kanta Sharma issued notice to the CBI and ED on Sisodia’s pleas challenging the April 30 order of the trial court which had rejected his bail pleas. The High Court listed the case for further hearing on May 8 (Wednesday).

In an interim application, Sisodia requested the court to continue the trial court’s order allowing him to meet his ailing wife once a week in custody during the pendency of his petitions. As the ED counsel said the investigating agency had no objection if the trial court order was continued, Justice Sharma accepted the request. The trial court had rejected Sisodia’s bail plea in corruption and money-laundering cases registered by the CBI and ED respectively in connection with alleged irregularities in the formulation and implementation of the now-defunct Delhi Excise Policy for 2021-22.

When was Manish Sisodia arrested?

Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26, 2023, for his alleged role in the scam. ED arrested the former Deputy Chief Minister in a money laundering case related to the CBI FIR on March 9, 2023. On February 28, 2023, Sisodia resigned from the Delhi Cabinet.
