CBI interrogated in April 2023
In April this year, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was interrogated by the CBI in its office for about 9.5 hours in the liquor policy case. He reached the agency office at 11:10 a.m. and came out of the agency office at 8:30 p.m.
After being interrogated by CBI, Kejriwal had said that he answered all the questions asked by CBI. We have nothing to hide. This entire alleged liquor scam is a lie, fake and motivated by dirty politics. AAP is a staunchly honest party. We will die and die but will never compromise with our honesty. Kejriwal claimed that the central government wanted to eliminate AAP but the people of the country are with them. He asked about 56 questions.
Apex court rejected Manish Sisodia’s bail plea
The Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant bail to former Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who was in jail for 247 days. AAP leader Sisodia is accused of corruption and money laundering in Delhi liquor policy. He was arrested on 26 February.
While delivering the verdict on Monday, the bench of Justice Sanjeev Khanna and Justice SVN Bhatti said – Answers to many questions related to the scam have not been received yet. Of these, the transactions of worth Rs 338 crore which took place seems to be suspicious, following which the Sisodia is under interrogation. Therefore the petition is dismissed.
The court also directed the investigating agencies to complete the trial in 6 to 8 months. If there is a delay in the trial, Sisodia can appeal again for bail within 3 months. Earlier on October 17, after hearing the arguments of all the parties, the court had reserved the decision till October 30.
