Delhi Excise Case: Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday extended the judicial custody of former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia till May 12. Sisodia’s judicial custody ended on May 27. The CBI produced him in the court on Thursday.
During the hearing, Advocate Hrishikesh, appearing for Manish Sisodia, argued that on the basis of incomplete charge sheet/incomplete investigation, his client is entitled to bail as per directions of the Supreme Court. CBI should tell whether the investigation of the case is complete or not. On this, the court asked the CBI whether the investigation has not been completed yet? The court has sought a copy of the investigation from the CBI.
Last month the court refused to grant bail
The court also said that the bail hearing in the CBI case is going on in the Delhi High Court. This aspect can be used to press for bail before the High Court. The special judge had last month denied bail to Sisodia.
