New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday adjourned the hearing on the bail plea of Aam Aadmi Party leader Manish Sisodia in a matter connected with liquor policy irregularities. A bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti listed the matter for October 4.
After the commencement of the hearing this morning, the court said that it could keep the matter at the end of the board or adjourn it for some other day. Senior Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Sisodia, apprised the court that both sides have agreed to adjournment.
He also alleged that there is always a newspaper article on the merits of the case whenever Sisodia's case comes up for the hearing. Justice Khanna said that he did not read newspapers.
Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has moved the Supreme Court for bail in CBI and ED cases related to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise Policy case. He has challenged the Delhi HC order rejecting his bail plea.
In its affidavit, the CBI has opposed the bail plea of Sisodia and urged the Supreme Court to dismiss it, saying that he is the kingpin and architect of the conspiracy in connection with liquor policy irregularities.
The CBI said that the health condition of Sisodia's wife is nothing new, as her treatment has been ongoing for 23 years, as mentioned by him. (with Agency inputs)
