Manish Sisodia

A court in the national capital, Monday, extended the judicial custody of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia by 14 days, till April 3.

Manish Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26 in connection with its ongoing probe into the purported Delhi excise policy ‘scam’ case.

The CBI told Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court that their investigation into the alleged scam is still pending and at a crucial stage which requires Sisodia’s further detention in judicial custody.

The development comes mere two days after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) was granted the AAP leader’s custody for five more days, till March 22.

On Friday last, 51-year-old Sisodia’s ED custody was extended by a court in Delhi till March 22. The ED had told the court that Sisodia was allegedly involved in “large-scale destruction of digital evidence to impede the investigation” and had purportedly changed and destroyed 14 phones.

Manish Sisodia was arrested on March 9 by the ED while he was already lodged in Tihar jail in case against him by the CBI in connection with the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy case.

A Delhi court last week extended the former Deputy CM’s custody by five days after the ED sought more time for investigating the charges.

The ED told the court that some vital information had come up during custody and he had to be confronted with the other accused.

After the court’s decision, senior Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Raghav Chadha on Friday had claimed that central probe agencies don’t have any evidence, only “fabricated and malicious” stories against Sisodia.

Speaking at a presser, Chadha had accused the BJP of engaging in “politics of revenge” which he claimed was the reason behind Sisodia’s arrest. He had also claimed that the CBI and the ED don’t have any evidence against the former Deputy CM, adding that the probe agencies only questioned Sisodia for 15 hours during seven days of remand.

Chadha had claimed said the BJP was “scared” of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). He further claimed that the probe agencies only have “concocted stories” against Sisodia, and when the CBI couldn’t find anything against him during their interrogation, they asked the ED to “frame more false cases.”

Last week, a similar case came to the fore from a village in Madhya Pradesh where an elderly man allegedly committed suicide days after he was punished in a Taliban-esque manner. The victim was reportedly abducted and then shackled to a tree by iron chains, tortured and assaulted, reportedly by the family of a girl who eloped with his son in a village of the state’s Chhatarpur district.

A video of the horrific incident which went viral on social media last Monday, showed the man, identified as Udha Ahirwar, a resident of Panchampur village, chained to a tree—hand and feet—as a woman, presumably his wife feeds him food and water.

According to reports, Ahirwar’s son, Shankar Ahirwar, works as a labour in Rajasthan with the prime accused, Zandu Ahirwar’s son-in-law, a resident of Peera village. Shankar reportedly eloped with Zandu’s granddaughter after the couple fell in love.

The couple got married last month and since then Zandu allegedly began torturing Shankar’s parents, reports said.
