New Delhi, July 10 Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear the bail plea of former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader, Manish Sisodia, arrested in connection with the Delhi liquor policy irregularities case on July 14.
A bench of the Supreme Court, headed by the Chief Justice of India (CJI), Dr Dhananjaya Yeshwant Chadrachud, said on Monday that we will hear the bail plea on July 14.
Sisodia sought bail on the grounds of her wife’s hospitalisation.
Initially, the Apex Court agreed to hear Sisodia’s bail application on July 17. But senior lawyer Dr Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Sisodia, pleaded to the Supreme Court bench for preponing the hearing from July 17 to 14, which was accepted by the CJI.
Sisodia had moved the Supreme Court against the denial of bail to him in two separate cases lodged by the two probe agencies, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED), in the Delhi liquor policy case.
