ED seeks 10-day remand of AAP MP Sanjay Singh in alleged Delhi liquor policy case

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sought 10-day remand of Aam Aadmi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in the alleged Delhi liquor policy case.

Special Public Prosecutor Naveen Kumar Matta appeared for ED in the Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday.
ED informed the court that searches were conducted on Wednesday at Sanjay Singh's residence and a statement was also recorded.
ED sought the remand of Sanjay Singh stating that ED has to confront Singh with digital evidence.

Sr Adv Mohit Mathur appeared for Sanjay Singh and said, "This case investigation keeps going and will never end. Dinesh Arora who is a star witness was made accused earlier by both agencies and later he turned approver in the case."

Sanjay Singh's lawyer opposed the remand plea of ED and said that demanding 10 days is an absurd position for someone who is not involved in the matter at all.

Meanwhile, before appearing in the court, Sanjay Singh said that his arrest is "Modiji's injustice and he would lose the election".
Sanjay Singh was taken into custody after a day-long interrogation by ED officials at his Delhi residence. He was later brought to the ED office on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, AAP workers and supporters who were protesting the arrest of AAP MP Sanjay Singh were detained by the police in Mumbai.
The Aam Aadmi Party has been protesting in several parts of India after the arrest of Sanjay Singh. AAP workers staged a protest in the national capital at the Aam Aadmi Party office and demanded his release.
Several senior leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party including Atishi, and Reena Gupta raised slogans against the BJP and demanded the release of AAP leader Sanjay Singh.

Notably, Sanjay Singh is the third prominent leader of the AAP, after Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, to be arrested by a central agency.
