‘Excise Policy Scam’: Manish Sisodia Moves Delhi HC Seeking Bail In CBI, ED Cases

The former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia on Thursday has approached the Delhi High Court seeking bail in the corruption & money laundering cases lodged by the CBI & ED in relation to the alleged excise policy scam.

The plea had been mentioned before a bench of Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Manmeet PS Arora for an urgent hearing and the court agreed to list it on Friday.


The bench stated, “Let the judge go through the file so let it come tomorrow.”

Advocates Rajat Bhardwaj and Mohd Irshad, representing Sisodia, submitted that the petitioner is an MLA and urged the court to list both the pleas seeking bail for an urgent hearing.

Sisodia had approached the high court challenging a trial court’s April 30 order by which his bail pleas in the 2 cases were dismissed.

The trial court has dismissed Sisodia’s bail pleas in corruption and money-laundering cases lodged by the both the CBI and the ED in connection with the alleged irregularities in the formulation and execution of the excise policy of 2021-22.

The special judge denied the relief, stating the stage is not right to grant bail to Sisodia.
