Satyamev Jayate: After Sanjay Singh was granted bail in the Delhi Excise Policy case by the Supreme Court, Atishi Marlena

New Delhi: In the Delhi excise policy case, the Supreme Court on Tuesday granted bail to Sanjay Singh, the leader of the Aam Admi Party. Senior party leader Atishi Marlena celebrated the Supreme Court’s decision on Twitter, writing “Satyamev Jayate.” Recall that Sanjay Singh was taken into custody in October of last year in relation to the Delhi excise policy issue. The high court panel, consisting of Justices Sanjiv Khanna, Dipankar Datta, and P. B. Varale, granted Singh bail. According to the Enforcement Directorate, there are no issues with Singh being granted bail in this matter.

In response to the Supreme Court’s decision, AAP leader Saurabh Bharadwaj remarked, “Today’s day will be considered a great milestone in Indian democracy.” The three-judge Supreme Court panel granted Sanjay Singh bail.In all of this, where is the money trail?

The AAP leader may go on with his political activities, but the bench ruled that he cannot comment on the matter in any way.

His release coincides with the AAP’s struggles to fill a leadership void ahead of the April 19 start of the Lok Sabha elections.

Due to the case, Tihar Jail is housing Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his former deputy, Manish Sisodia.

The bench declared that Singh would be released on bail for the duration of the trial, with the special court setting the terms and circumstances of the release.

Additional Solicitor General SV Raju represented the ED at the post-lunch session, stating that he had followed the probe agency’s orders and that the agency had no issues with Singh being granted further bail.

He said, “I am keeping all the rights and contentions open and making the statement without getting into the merits of the case.”

The bench issued the following decision after taking notice of the statement: “ASG SV Raju was directed to receive directions in the morning session. He said they have no issues with Sanjay Singh being freed on bail in the FIR proceedings.Given the remarks, we grant the current appeal and order Sanjay Singh to be freed on bail until the outcome of the trial, according to the parameters established by the trial court.

The bench declared that Singh’s bail concession would not be regarded as “precedent.” Consequently, Kejriwal and the other AAP leaders who are detained may not benefit much from this bail decision.

The court had earlier directed Raju to get input on whether the ED required further custody of Singh during the morning session.

Singh’s appeal against his arrest and custody in the money laundering case, as well as his request for release, were being heard by the highest court.

The court informed Raju that the Rs 2 crore bribe claims may be proven during the trial and that no money had been found in his hands.

In the post-lunch session, Raju promised to address Singh’s arguments against his detention and remand.

Senior attorney Abhishek Singhvi, who represented Singh at the court, said that the AAP leader was detained because approver Dinesh Arora had recorded a tenth statement prior to the agency naming him.

On October 4 of last year, the ED apprehended Singh in connection with the case.
