Delhi High Court Grants AAP Leader Manish Sisodia to Meet Ailing Wife

Just three days ago, the bail application of Sisodia was dismissed by the Delhi High Court, stating that the allegations against him were of a serious nature.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia was granted interim relief in the Delhi excise policy case, enabling him to meet his ailing wife for a designated period. While in custody on June 3, Sisodia has been permitted to visit his wife between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The Delhi High Court, which was handling Sisodia’s interim bail plea, has additionally requested that the medical records of his wife be submitted by the following day. Sisodia’s wife is battling multiple sclerosis, a condition that affects the brain and central nervous system and can lead to potential disability.

Despite being granted interim relief, Manish Sisodia, who was relieved of his duties as the Delhi deputy chief minister after his arrest, will have limitations on his interactions. Apart from his immediate family members, Sisodia will not be permitted to meet anyone else. Additionally, he will be prohibited from accessing the internet or engaging with the media during this period.

Manish Sisodia, in light of his wife’s deteriorating health, had filed an interim bail request. Today, the court deferred its decision on the bail plea, reserving its order for a later date.

Liquor case and Sisodia’s arrest

On February 26, Sisodia was taken into custody by the CBI in relation to the Delhi liquor policy case. Subsequently, on March 9, the ED arrested Manish Sisodia in connection with the same case, following an extensive period of questioning at Tihar Jail.

The Delhi government introduced a liquor policy on November 17, 2021, but it was later revoked in September 2022 due to corruption allegations. Manish Sisodia, a prominent AAP leader, is currently under investigation by the CBI and the Enforcement Directorate for alleged corruption and money laundering activities.
