Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh : Aam Aadmi Party’s Rajya Sabha MP, Sanjay Singh, arrested in connection with an alleged liquor scam, has completed a 51-day stint in jail. The court has further extended his judicial custody by 14 days, setting a new release date of December 4. A bail petition filed by Singh is slated for a potential hearing on Saturday in the trial court.
Special Judge MK Nagpal mandated the extension of Sanjay Singh’s judicial custody until December 4, acknowledging the investigating officer’s commitment to filing a charge sheet against the accused imminently. Singh’s lawyer, Mohammad Irshad, confirmed the filing of the bail petition in the Rouse Avenue Court registry, anticipating a hearing on Saturday.
Following the conclusion of the 14-day judicial custody period, Sanjay Singh was presented in the Rouse Avenue Court on Friday. After reviewing arguments from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and Singh’s defense, the court directed his return to jail. Sanjay Singh’s arrest on October 4, following a prolonged raid and interrogation at his official residence in Delhi, led to eight days of ED custody before his transfer to Tihar Jail. The ED alleges his pivotal role in shaping the excise policy and engagement in bribery transactions.
Despite denials from the Delhi government and the Aam Aadmi Party, dismissing the accusations as baseless, the ED continues its pursuit. The Aam Aadmi Party contends that the Central Government is orchestrating false cases against prominent party figures to impede the efficient governance of Delhi. In the same case, former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, has been in jail since February, with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also receiving summons.
