ED Opposes Bail for Manish Sisodia, Referring to Supreme Court Order

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) objected to the bail plea of Manish Sisodia, former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), citing serious allegations in the Delhi liquor policy case. During a hearing at a local court here on Monday, the investigative agency argued that delay in trial cannot be a basis for bail in grave cases. The ED also referred to a Supreme Court order in this regard.

“If Sisodia’s lawyers are pressuring for bail citing trial delays, they should file a affidavit,” stated the ED. The agency highlighted that they had previously informed the court about the large number of applications filed, implying that the pace of proceedings cannot be solely attributed to them.

Opposing the bail plea of the AAP leader, the ED remarked, “The Supreme Court has referred to Article 21, stating that if the offense is serious, delay alone cannot be the basis for interim bail. Recently, the High Court also made significant comments regarding non-participation in the investigation.”

The case against Sisodia and others in the Delhi liquor policy scandal continues to unfold, with the ED steadfast in its pursuit of justice. The opposition from the ED underscores the gravity of the allegations and the legal complexities surrounding the matter. As the legal proceedings progress, all eyes remain on the court’s decision regarding Sisodia’s bail plea.
