'All jailed AAP leaders will be freed': Sanjay Singh walks out of Tihar after six months

New Delhi/IBNS: After spending six months behind bars in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case, senior AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh was on Wednesday released from Tihar jail following his bail by the Supreme Court.

He walked out of the prison on Wednesday evening a day after the Supreme Court granted him bail in connection with the case.

The apex court noted that there was "no trace" of the money allegedly received as bribes by the AAP for allotting liquor licences.

Singh was released after the bail order was received by the jail authorities and was welcomed by a huge crowd of AAP supporters.

Addressing the crowd from atop a vehicle, the AAP leader said, "Arvind Kejriwal, who is the biggest leader, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain have been kept behind bars."

"Mera bharosa hai ki jail ke taale tootenge, hamare saare neta chhutenge (It is my belief that all jailed AAP leaders will be freed)," he said.

Walking out of the jail, Singh went straight to the house of Kejriwal, who was arrested in the case on March 21, to meet his wife, Sunita.

The Enforcement Directorate had arrested Singh in the Delhi liquor policy case.

After the MP was granted bail on Tuesday, senior AAP leader and Delhi minister Atishi had said that the Supreme Court's order had vindicated the party's stand on the agency being unable to trace the bribe money in the alleged scam and on the alleged coercion of witnesses.

Kejriwal's former deputy, Manish Sisodia, and BRS leader K Kavitha have also been arrested in the same case and the opposition parties have made the alleged misuse of central agencies by the BJP a central plank of their campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
