Manish Sisodia Denied Relief, Lawyers Apologize After Court Expresses Displeasure

Manish Sisodia, former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, faced another setback as the Rouse Avenue Court extended his judicial custody until May 7 in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. During a recent hearing, the court expressed strong displeasure after Sisodia’s lawyers unexpectedly walked out, prompting them to later apologize for their actions.

The incident occurred after a heated argument during the hearing, after which the lawyers exited the courtroom without permission. Judge Kaveri Baweja noted this was an unprecedented behavior, especially since the lawyers left immediately after presenting their arguments, without any formal dismissal or permission from the court.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has labeled Sisodia as the “kingpin” behind the alleged liquor scam, arguing against granting him bail on the grounds that he could potentially influence witnesses or tamper with evidence. The court has reserved its decision on Sisodia’s bail plea, with a verdict expected to be delivered on April 30.
