Son abroad, wife ill, Manish Sisodia claims during the bail hearing,CBI Disagrees

Manish Sisodia, a former deputy chief minister of Delhi, said a Delhi court on Tuesday that his wife is ill and that no one is available to care for her. His attorney said that because his son studies abroad, he is responsible for taking care of her.


The Central Bureau of Investigation, which arrested him on February 26, opposed his request for release, claiming that because of his position inside the government, he could easily not only conceal but also obliterate relevant evidence.


Mr. Sisodia said that he had assisted the CBI investigation into the Delhi Excise Policy Case and that none of the searches had turned up anything that might be used against him as evidence. He was no longer in need of an incarceration, according to his attorney, and he posed no flight danger.


His attorney said that even though I work for the government, two other public employees who are the targets of more serious allegations have not been detained. He also said there was no proof in writing that he had received kickbacks.


Even while Mr. Sisodia is not a flight risk, the CBI contended that if released, he could sway witnesses and impair the probe.


Additionally, Mr. Sisodia's attorney informed the court that the total number of offenses claimed justifies fewer than seven years in prison and that any additional incarceration would not be appropriate.


According to the CBI's attorney, Manish Sisodia held 18 portfolios and had access to all the information. He also allegedly destroyed several phones that he had used and even some important papers.


The CBI's attorney claimed that the former deputy chief minister's repeated phone changes weren't an accident; rather, they were done on purpose to obliterate case-related evidence.


In this situation, the investigating agency has 60 days to file the chargesheet, and he warned that if Manish Sisodia is found out, the probe will be badly jeopardized.

The following bail hearing will occur on Friday.
