Sanjay Singh, a member of the House of Representatives, and other AAP officials were held today following a large-scale protest by them against Manish Sisodia’s interrogation by the CBI in the liquor policy case. Dramatic images showed the cops stuffing the leaders into a bus. While being led to the bus, a number of the female workers said the police “misbehaved” with them.
Numerous party members gathered outside the CBI headquarters before the police intervened.
Earlier in the day, the deputy chief minister of Delhi foresaw his detention as a part of what he called a BJP “plan” to prevent him from running for office in the next election in Gujarat. On his trip to the CBI office, he also conducted a tour in an open-roof SUV and stopped at a number of locations, including Raj Ghat, the site of Mahatma Gandhi’s monument, where he spoke to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) members.
Following a “tilak” ceremony, Mr. Sisodia, 50, departed from his house with the help of AAP leaders such party MP Sanjay Singh and MLAs Atishi and Saurabh Bhardwaj. Additionally, he uploaded a video of his mother praising him.
According to insiders, the CBI has a list of inquiries that it would pose in “many phases.” They claim that the Deputy Chief Minister will be presented with the evidence that has been uncovered thus far and the statements of those who have been implicated in the “liquor fraud.”
