Sanjay Singh, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party, had his judicial custody extended by the Rouse Avenue Court on Monday until December 11, 2023, in connection with a money laundering case involving the excise policy case. In the meantime, the court stated that the bail arguments will take place on December 6, 2023, and directed that Sanjay Singh’s attorney receive a copy of the supplemental chargesheet in advance. The Enforcement Directorate filed an application earlier in the arguments, claiming that one protected witness’s name had been accidentally mentioned and that, as a result, it would not become public knowledge because of their protection.
The court has reserved the order for the interim court and directed the court staff to keep the file in secrecy.
However, the court, while ordering to serve the advance copy to Sanjay Singh’s lawyer, allowed ED to remove or hide such a portion mentioning the protected witness name.
Special Justice MK Nagpal extended the judicial custody of Sanjay Singh until December 11, 2023.
The Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a supplementary prosecution complaint (charge sheet) on Saturday against Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh and his alleged associate Sarvesh Mishra in a money laundering case related to the excise policy case.
On October 4, senior AAP leader Sanjay Singh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate. Sanjay Singh is presently in judicial custody at Tihar Jail.
