In regards to the Delhi Excise Policy Scam case, the CBI started questioning Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday. Before going to the CBI office, he went to Raj Ghat and paid his respect to Mahatma Gandhi. Sisodia, the first accused in the CBI FIR, was questioned on October 17 beforefiling charge sheet on November 25 last year. According to insiders, the CBI did not include Sisodia in the charge sheet since the central investigation agency continued to investigate him and other suspects and accused.
Chandan Chowdhary, DCP (South), said. “A few leaders and supporters of AAP gathered at Lodhi Road, near the CGO complex, with the intention to cross the barricades and protest near the CBI office. They were stopped and not allowed to cross the barricade. They sat on the main road and obstructed traffic. They were requested to vacate the place as Section 144 of CrPC had been imposed in the area. But they continued shouting slogans. A total of 50 persons (42 men and 8 women) were detained following this. MP Sanjay Singh, Minister Gopal Rai, MLAs Rohit Kumar Mehraulia, Dinesh Mohnia, and Kuldeep Singh, and ex-MLA Sarita Singh were among those detained,”
Ahead of appearing before the CBI, Sisodia said: “I want to tell Kejriwal ji, aap chaalu rakhiye….logon ke liye aise hi ladte rahiye.. Modi ji, who is not even scared of Rahul Gandhi, is scared of only one party — that is AAP! They will put me in jail…. but we are not afraid, we will fight. Kejriwal is the only future of this country.” “I can go to jail a few times and I am not afraid. When I left my job as a journalist, my wife supported me and even today, my family is standing by my side. My workers will take care of my family if I get arrested,” he added.
