AAP’s Sanjay Singh Files Plea in Delhi HC Against Arrest in Money Laundering Case

New Delhi, Oct 13. The Delhi High Court on Friday agreed to list a plea by AAP leader Sanjay Singh against his arrest in a money laundering case related to alleged irregularities in the scrapped Delhi excise policy.

The plea was mentioned for urgent hearing by Singh’s lawyer before a bench comprising Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Narula.

Sanjay Singh‘s lawyer argued that proper grounds for his arrest were not provided to him.

The court responded, “Alright.”

On October 10, a trial court had remanded Singh, who was arrested earlier this month, to the custody of the Enforcement Directorate until October 13.

The money laundering case by the ED is based on the CBI FIR.

According to the CBI and the ED, irregularities were committed while modifying the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22, and undue favors were given to license holders.

The Delhi government had implemented the excise policy on November 17, 2021, but scrapped it at the end of September 2022 due to corruption allegations.
