In the Delhi liquor policy case, the Supreme Court on Tuesday granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Sanjay Singh. This decision came after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) stated that his custody was no longer necessary.

Sanjay Singh is to be released on bail during the proceedings, with terms and conditions to be determined by the Trial Court.

The Supreme Court noted that the concession granted should not be cited as precedent. Additionally, the top court affirmed that the AAP leader is entitled to continue his political activities. Furthermore, the apex court clarified that it has refrained from making any comments on the merits of the case.

Sanjay Singh has become the first senior AAP leader to be granted regular bail in the money laundering case associated with the now-scrapped liquor policy.

Previously, Sanjay Singh had sought bail in the Delhi High Court, arguing that he wasn’t involved in the main offense. However, the court rejected his plea. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) opposed his bail, claiming his involvement in activities related to the proceeds of the Delhi liquor scam during the 2021-22 policy period. The ED alleged that Singh received kickbacks from the liquor policy ‘scam’. The ED’s case originated from a Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) FIR, alleging irregularities in the modification of the Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22, with undue favors granted to license holders.
