Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia moved the Supreme Court on Tuesday; he has challenged his arrest and the manner of the CBI’s investigation in the alleged liquor scam case.
Sisodia has been remanded to five-days judicial custody in the alleged liquor policy scam case.
After questioning the top Aam Aadmi Party leader for more than eight hours on Sunday, the investigation agency arrested Sisodia and requested five days of imprisonment.
One of the defendants listed in the chargesheet submitted by the CBI in the case is Sisodia.
Sisodia had to be detained for his involvement in the excise policy scheme, according to the CBI, who said he was resisting them during the inquiry.
“He gave evasive replies and did not cooperate the investigation despite being confronted with evidence to the contrary. Therefore, he has been arrested,” the CBI said in a statement.
