AAP’s Sanjay Singh MP gets bail from Supreme Court in liquor policy case after six months in jail

Six months after he was arrested, the Supreme Court granted bail to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh in the Delhi excise policy case on Tuesday, after the Enforcement Directorate told the apex court that it has “no objection” to his bail.

The top court said that Sanjay Singh be released on bail “during pendency of proceedings”, adding that “in view of the statement made (by the ED), Sanjay Singh will be released on terms and conditions to be fixed by trial court.”

Reacting to the apex court’s order, senior AAP leader said ‘Satyamev Jayate’ in a social media post on X.

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

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, his former deputy Manish Sisodia and former health minister Satyendar Jain are under judicial custody in the same case.

Singh was allowed to take oath as a Rajya Sabha MP on March 19, when he was still lodged in jail.
