Sisodiya Denied Bail By Delhi High Court
Earlier on Monday, Sisodiya’s bail application was rejected by Delhi High Court.
The High Court also denied bail applications produced by Vijay Nair, (former communication in charge of AAP), Abhiskeh Boinpally (Buisnssmen) and Binoy Babu (Manager of Pernod Ricard).
Rejecting the bail applications, the High Court laid emphasis on the likelihood of evidence tempering while remarking, “The possibility of tempering evidence and influencing witnesses cannot be ruled out and section 45 twin condition isn’t satisfied.”
Sisosiya Moves To Supreme Court
Following the rejection of his bail application by the High Court of Delhi, Manish Sisodiya on Thursday moved to Supreme Court for relief.
Sisodiya, an ex-deputy minister of NCT, was arrested by ED back in the month of March in an alleged liquor scam and is currently in judicial custody.
