A Delhi court on Wednesday, 22 March, sent former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia to 14-day judicial custody in a money laundering case arising out of the excise policy matter.
Special Judge MK Nagpal sent the senior AAP leader to jail till 5 April after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) produced him on the conclusion of his custodial interrogation in the matter.
The anti-money laundering probe agency has so far quizzed Sisodia for seven days in its custody in the matter.
On Tuesday, the special court deferred the hearing to 25 March on the bail plea of Sisodia in the main case being probed by the CBI.
The CBI on 26 February arrested Sisodia in connection with alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22.
The ED arrested Sisodia on 9 March in Tihar jail, where he was lodged in connection with the case being probed by the CBI.
