Manish Sisodia being tortured in CBI custody, claims AAP

Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Atishi on Sunday said that the Central Bureau of Investigation and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) have failed to prove corruption charges against former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia in the excise policy case. “The central agencies do not have any evidence against Sisodia even after 50 hours of search, 10,000-page chargesheet and investigation carried out by 500 officials,” said Atishi while addressing a press conference. She further claimed that Sisodia is being mentally tortured in CBI custody.
“CBI filed the chargesheet in which Sisodia was not named. Then it was told that Sisodia’s name would appear in the next charge sheet, but he was not named in CBI’s supplementary charge sheet too. They (CBI and ED) don’t have any proof of corruption even of Rs 1, but only to appease their bosses, they have arrested Sisodia. He is being mentally tortured in custody,” the AAP leader said. Sisodia was arrested last Sunday in an ongoing investigation of a case related to alleged irregularities in the framing and implementation of the excise policy of GNCTD. The Rouse Avenue Court on Saturday extended the CBI remand of former Delhi Minister Manish Sisodia in the case.
