Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court extended Judicial Custody of former Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia in the Delhi excise policy scam case April 3 on Monday.
CBI had sought further extension of the judicial custody by 14 days, saying that investigation is still pending.
Investigation is at a crucial stage, CBI said.
Court has asked Sisodia to move a request for production through video conferencing if he wishes to appear virtually on April 3.
Meanwhile, a Delhi court on Friday extended the ED custody by five days of AAP leader Manish Sisodia, arrested in a money laundering case related to the excise policy, saying the physical custody of the accused appeared necessary for his further effective interrogation.
The ED arrested Sisodia on March 9 in the Tihar Jail, where he was lodged in connection with a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) case about alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy for 2021-22. The CBI had arrested Sisodia on February 26.
