A Bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice P.B. Varale told Additional Solicitor General S.V. Raju, appearing for the Enforcement Directorate (ED), to take instructions and apprise it in a post-lunch session of the court on whether further custody of Mr. Singh was required and remarked that he has spent six months in jail. Later, ED told the apex court that it has no objection if the AAP leader is granted bail.
Mr. Singh was arrested in the case by the ED on October 4 last year.
Satyameva Jayate: Atishi
AAP leader Atishi welcomed the Supreme Court’s decision to grant bail to the party’s Rajya Sabha MP. The Delhi Minister shared the news of Mr. Singh’s bail in a post on X and said in Hindi, “Satyameva Jayate.”
Before the high court, Mr. Singh had sought bail on the grounds that he had been in custody for over three months and no role has been attributed to him in the predicate offence.
The probe agency in the high court had opposed the bail plea and claimed that Singh was involved in acquiring, possessing, concealing, dissipating and using proceeds of the crime generated from the Delhi liquor scam pertaining to the policy period of 2021-22. (Agencies)
