CBI Files FIR Against Ex-Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia In Feedback Unit Case: Details Inside!

Manish Sisodia, a former deputy chief minister of Delhi, is the subject of a case that the Central Bureau of Investigation has opened. The former deputy chief minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia, has been named in a FIR filed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the Feedback Unit case. Manish Sisodia is the subject of the central agency’s second complaint. A complaint was previously brought by the CBI for alleged corruption in Manish Sisodia’s role in the 2021–22 excise policy. After that, the AAP administration abandoned the excise strategy.

Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, stated that the Prime Minister’s intention to file numerous fictitious charges against Manish Sisodia and hold him in detention for an extended period of time is unfortunate for the nation. “The PM’s plan is to slap several false cases against Manish and keep him in custody for a long period. Sad for the country!” Arvind Kejriwal tweeted.

In a CBI-filed FIR, Manish Sisodia was one of 15 people detained. The suspects in the case included excise agents, executives from the liquor industry, dealers, unidentified state personnel, and private individuals. It was claimed that irregularities had been perpetrated, including changes to the Excise Policy and the distribution of unauthorised favours to licence holders, such as waivers or discounts on licensing fees or extensions of L-1 licences without consent.

Manish Sisodia is currently being held by the ED in connection with the same excise policy matter. While in the Tihar Prison, where he is being held under court supervision, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested him. Sisodia was detained for 14 days in judicial prison on March 6 after being detained by the CBI on February 26 in connection with the liquor policy case. He was arrested in connection with the alleged irregularities in the framing and implementation of the excise policy of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD).

Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court sent him to judicial custody till March 20. The ED also made another arrest in the case earlier, as it took Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Ramchandra Pillai into its custody. The probe agency has also questioned Bharatiya Rashtriya Samiti (BRS) MLC and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s daughter, K Kavitha in the liquor policy case. It was claimed that irregularities had been committed, such as changes to the Excise Policy, and that licence holders had received ill-gotten gains, such as waivers or discounts on licence fees or the unauthorised renewal of L-1 licences.
