Delhi Court Postpones Hearing on Sanjay Singh’s Bail Plea in Liquor Policy Case
National Desk, 25th November: The court hearing for Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh’s bail plea in the Delhi liquor policy case was postponed on Saturday due to the concerned judge’s unavailability. The matter is now likely to be heard on November 28.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) raided Singh’s home last month in connection with a money laundering case involving the Delhi liquor policy, leading to Singh’s arrest. He was detained by the ED for five days at first, and then for an additional three days. He was later placed in judicial custody.
The ED alleges Singh’s involvement in implementing a now-cancelled policy favoring certain liquor businesses in exchange for money. Singh has consistently denied these accusations.
On Friday, the Delhi court extended Singh’s judicial custody until December 4. The court noted that since Singh’s initial appearance on October 5, the mandatory investigation period expires on December 3. The ED informed the court that a supplementary prosecution complaint is set to be filed within the prescribed time.
Two applications were submitted on Singh’s behalf, one requesting an electric kettle in jail and the other seeking permission to obtain signatures on two cheques. The court directed the jail superintendent to consider the electric kettle request, taking into account the jail manual and health grounds.
