AAP Leader Sanjay Singh Seeks Interim Bail for Parliament Session Amid Money Laundering Case

Senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh has moved a Delhi court seeking interim bail in a money laundering case related to an alleged excise scam. Singh aims to take oath as a member of the Rajya Sabha and attend the ongoing Parliament session. The court issued notice to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and directed the agency to file its reply by February 3 on the application seeking interim bail from February 4 to 10. Singh, elected unopposed to Rajya Sabha last month, faces allegations of receiving Rs 2 crore in connection with the scrapped Delhi excise policy 2021-22.

Key Points:

  • Sanjay Singh was arrested by the ED on October 4 in the money laundering case.
  • The court had earlier dismissed his bail application, stating his connection with the “proceeds of crime to the extent of Rs 2 crore.”
  • The application seeks interim bail for Singh to take oath as a Member of Parliament and attend the ongoing Parliamentary Session.
  • The ED alleges that Singh played a key role in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy, benefiting certain liquor entities for monetary considerations.
  • The case originated from an FIR lodged by the CBI following a complaint by Lt Governor V K Saxena, accusing Singh of corruption in the excise policy.

The court has directed the ED to respond by February 3, considering Singh’s request for interim bail during the specified period.
