New Delhi: AAP MP Sanjay Singh found himself at the center of attention as he appeared in Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy case. Amidst a flurry of media coverage, Singh made a statement alleging political motive behind his arrest. The courtroom drama unfolded as his lawyer and the ED prosecutor presented their arguments, shedding light on the ongoing legal battle.

Sanjay Singh’s court appearance

In a packed courtroom, AAP MP Sanjay Singh faced the media and proclaimed, “Modiji will lose, he is losing the elections, that is why this is being done.” Singh’s defiant stance suggests that he sees his arrest as politically motivated, with impending elections on the horizon.

Allegations and legal proceedings

Sanjay Singh’s lawyer, Mohit Mathur, vehemently defended his client, asserting that Singh’s arrest lacked a solid legal basis. Mathur further requested a remand copy from the ED to better understand the charges against his client.

The ED, represented by Special Public Prosecutor Naveen Kumar Matta, countered these claims by revealing that two separate transactions, totaling Rs 2 crore, had been identified. Dinesh Arora, who works closely with Sanjay Singh, allegedly confirmed these transactions over the phone. The ED’s remand paper references money transactions at Singh’s residence.

ED’s claims and Sanjay Singh’s response

The ED claimed that two transactions, one of Rs 1 crore and another of Rs 1 crore, had occurred. They stated that Sarvesh, an employee of Sanjay Singh, received the money at Singh’s residence, a fact corroborated by Dinesh Arora.

Sanjay Singh vehemently denied the allegations, accusing the ED of lying. The court questioned whether Singh’s employees’ statements had been recorded and inquired about the timing of his arrest, considering the transactions took place in August and October 2021.

ED’s digital evidence

The ED revealed that digital evidence had been secured, including the confiscation of phones, further strengthening their case. They emphasized that they had conducted searches at 239 locations, unveiling crucial details about the financial transactions in question.

Ongoing legal battle

While Singh’s courtroom drama unfolded, the hearing in the Supreme Court regarding the bail of Manish Sisodia, another prominent AAP member, remained incomplete. The ED sought ten days’ custody, citing the need for further questioning and evidence collection.

Legal complexities

Sanjay Singh’s lawyer argued against the need for remand, alleging that Singh’s arrest had a different agenda. He pointed out the changing statements of key witnesses and questioned the timing of Singh’s arrest.

As the legal battle unfolds, the intricacies of the Delhi Excise Policy case continue to dominate headlines, raising questions about its political implications and the individuals involved.

Sanjay Singh’s dramatic court appearance amidst ED raids has escalated the ongoing legal battle, with allegations of political motivations and a flurry of legal complexities making headlines. The coming days are likely to witness further developments in this high-profile case.
