Supreme Court Grants Bail to AAP MP Sanjay Singh After 6 Months in Jail

Delhi's Political Landscape Shifts as Legal Battles Unfold: Sanjay Singh's Release and Arvind Kejriwal's Incarceration


After spending 6 months in jail, AAP Member of Parliament Sanjay Singh has been granted bail by the Supreme Court in connection with the Delhi Liquor Policy Case. The Supreme Court, while granting bail, stated that the conditions of the bail will be determined by the trial court, emphasizing that this bail should not set a precedent. Notably, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) did not oppose the bail and indicated that Singh could be granted bail. With this development, Sanjay Singh can now resume his political activities. During the previous hearing, senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, representing Singh, highlighted that in the initial statements of the principal witness of the Enforcement Directorate, Dinesh Aroda, Singh’s name was not mentioned. Singh was arrested two and a half years after the incident. Singhvi argued in court that the testimony of an approver is not reliable until it is corroborated. Singh’s name was first mentioned in Aroda’s statement on July 19, 2023. Even in Section 164 statements, Singh’s name was not mentioned. Singh had filed a complaint against the ED for defamation, following which he was arrested by the ED without any summons.

Previously, Singh’s bail plea was dismissed by the High Court on February 7th. However, upon the commencement of the trial in the lower court, directions were given to expedite the proceedings. Singh has been re-elected to the Rajya Sabha from Delhi. The Enforcement Directorate arrested Singh in the case on October 4, 2023.

In another related development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been imprisoned in Tihar Jail in connection with the Delhi Liquor Policy money laundering case. Sanjay Singh, Manish Sisodia, and K. Kavitha are already incarcerated in this case. Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 and remained in custody for 10 days. After the end of the Enforcement Directorate’s custody, he was presented in the court of Special Judge Kaveri Baweja. The ED requested a 15-day judicial custody for him, stating that he did not cooperate at all. The court approved the ED’s request.
