New Delhi: A Delhi Court on Friday dismissed the bail application of former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia in Delhi Liquor policy case.

CBI Special Judge MK Nagpal after hearing arguments and submission on behalf of Central Bureau of Investigation and Defence Counsel passed an order to dismiss the bail application.

Counsel for Sisodia earlier submitted through before the Court that Sisodia has always cooperated with the investigating agency and nothing incriminating material found against him during the searches. He said there is no evidence that the applicant may influence the witnesses except a vague thing that he is in a position to influence the witnesses. He further submitted that not a single penny has been traced from Sisodia.

He further submitted that no fruitful purpose would be serve by keeping him behind the bar. He is ready to abide all the terms and conditions leveled by the court, if granted bail.

Government Counsel for CBI after filing written submission opposed the regular bail application of Sisodia by submitting before the Court that in this matter phones were frequently changed by Manish Sisodia which is not an innocent act, it was done for the destruction of evidence. If bail is granted he may destroy the evidence.

Sisodia was arrested by CBI on February 26 after about eight hours of questioning on various aspects of the excise policy for 2021-22. According to investigating agency the excise policy was suffered from irregularities in its formulation and implementation.
