The Delhi Court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia till May 31 in a money laundering case registered in connection with alleged liquor policy scam.

Hearing the case, the Delhi Rouse Avenue Court extended Sisodia’s custody. The Aam Aadmi Party leader has been under custody since February 2023. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Bharat Rashtra Samiti leader K. Kavitha have also been arrested in connection with the case. Kejriwal is out on interim bail till June 1.

Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court will hear Sisodia’s bail pleas on Tuesday. Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma, hearing the case on May 14, had reserved orders on the bail pleas. Sisodia has sought bail in cases registered by both the Enforcement Directorate and Central Bureau of Investigation against him in connection with the alleged liquor policy scam. The High Court is likely to pronounce the orders on both bail pleas at 5pm on May 21, according to the cause list uploaded on the High Court's website.
