Delhi excise 'scam': AAP leader Sanjay Singh moves court seeking bail

New Delhi, Nov 24 (PTI) AAP leader Sanjay Singh, arrested in a money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise scam, on Friday moved a court here seeking bail, his lawyer said.

The application was filed in the Rouse Avenue Court's registry and is likely to come up for hearing on Saturday, advocate Mohd Irshad said.

Special Judge M K Nagpal, meanwhile, extended Singh's judicial custody till December 4.

Singh was produced before the court on expiry of his judicial custody granted earlier.

The court passed the order on the request of ED.

The judge also noted the submission of the investigating officer that the charge sheet against the accused is likely to be filed shortly and within prescribed time.

The court, meanwhile, allowed an application filed by Singh seeking permission to sign two cheques to release money for the purpose of family expenses.

During the hearing today, Singh also filed another application seeking a direction to the jail authorities to allow him to use an electric kettle inside the jail.

The judge, however, passed a direction to the jail authorities to treat the application as per guidelines, saying that the kettle has a cord, which can be misused.

The anti-money laundering agency had arrested Singh on October 4. The ED has alleged that Singh played a key role in the formulation and implementation of the now scrapped policy, which benefited certain liquor manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, for monetary considerations.
