Manish Sisodia’s Judicial Custody Extended Till June 1 In Money Laundering Case
New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia till June 1 in a money laundering case related to the excise scam.
The judge directed the jail authorities to consider providing the politician with a chair and table inside the jail along with books.
As Mr Sisodia was brought out of the courtroom, he told the media that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had “no faith in democracy” while referring to a bill to replace the central government’s Ordinance on Services in Delhi.
“Modi has become very arrogant,” alleged the former deputy chief minister.
The Delhi government implemented the excise policy on November 17, 2021, but revoked it at the end of September 2022 amid allegations of corruption.
Sisodia is an accused in both the CBI and Enforcement Directorate cases in the matter.
