Manish Sisodia Arrested By CBI: Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will be produced in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court today (February 27). The CBI has arrested Sisodia in connection with alleged corruption in the implementation of the new liquor policy. Today, the Aam Aadmi Party will hold a countrywide protest against the arrest. AAP supporters and workers will also protest in front of the BJP headquarters. Delhi Police is also on alert mode regarding this. Orders have been given to keep an eye on all AAP leaders.
Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with alleged irregularities in the Excise Policy 2021-22. Before his arrest, the investigating agency had interrogated him for about eight hours. Terming it as ‘dirty politics’, Delhi Chief Minister and AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal said there was a lot of ‘anger’ among the people and he would ‘answer’ it. Sisodia spent the night at the Central Bureau of Investigation headquarters in Delhi. He also has to have a medical checkup this morning before being presented in the CBI court.
Delhi Police on alert
In view of the protests, the national capital has been put on alert and Delhi Police has made elaborate security arrangements to maintain law and order. The CBI is expected to get the custody of the minister. CBI officials said the expected arrest was made because senior AAP leaders were not cooperating in the probe and were evading clarifications sought on crucial points.
‘To go to jail for false charges is a small thing’
Before going to the CBI office on February 26, Sisodia had said, ‘If I am going to the CBI office again today, I will cooperate fully in the entire investigation. The love of lakhs of children and the blessings of crores of countrymen are with us. Will have to stay in jail for a few months. I am a follower of Bhagat Singh who was hanged for the country. It is a small thing to go to jail for such false allegations.”
