Manish Sisodia To Spend The Night At CBI Headquarters, Court Date Tomorrow



Manish Sisodia, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister, has been arrested by the CBI and will be presented in court tomorrow. The Aam Aadmi Party leader was today arrested in connection with alleged corruption in the implementation of a new liquor policy in Delhi.

Manish Sisodia will spend the night at the headquarters of the Central Bureau of Investigation in Delhi. He will undergo a medical checkup tomorrow morning before being presented in a CBI court.

Mr Sisodia and others face corruption allegations in bringing a new liquor sale policy in the national capital.

“Manish is innocent. His arrest is dirty politics. There is a lot of anger among the people due to the Mr Sisodia’s arrest. Everyone is watching. People understand everything. People will respond to this. This will boost our spirit further. Our struggle will get stronger,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.
