A Delhi court on Tuesday dismissed the bail pleas of former deputy chief minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia in the corruption and money laundering cases lodged by the CBI and the ED in relation to the alleged excise scam.

Special judge for CBI and ED, Kaveri Baweja, denied the relief, saying the stage was not right to grant the bail. The court had reserved the order after hearing arguments from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) as well as the counsel appearing for Sisodia.

Sisodia to appeal in HC

Soon after the court's order, Aam Aadmi Party in a statement said that Sisodia would approach the High Court against the city court order, rejecting his bail in the alleged excise policy scam case.

Delhi's former Deputy Chief Minister was denied bail by the trial court, Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court in both ED and CBI cases.

The Supreme Court had also dismissed Sisodia's review petitions against the denial of bail.

Sisodia's curative petitions have also been dismissed.

Sisodia, who also served as excise minister in the Delhi government, was arrested by the CBI on February 26 last year in connection with the case.
