Manish Sisodia reaches residence to meet ailing wife after Delhi HC grants interim bailtext_fields
New Delhi: Manish Sisodia, a former deputy chief minister of Delhi, travelled from the Tihar prison to his home on Saturday after obtaining an interim bail to visit his ailing wife.
On Friday, the Delhi High Court granted the AAP leader's request to see his wife after he was detained in connection with alleged irregularities in the city's excise policy.
Justice Dinesh Kumar Sharma directed the Tihar jail superintendent to take Sisodia to his residence where he has been allowed to meet his wife from 10 am to 5 pm.
A senior jail official said Sisodia was taken to his residence around 9 am under security cover. He will have to report back at 5 pm.
Sisodia was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on February 26 for his alleged role in the scam and has been in custody since. The high court denied him bail in the CBI case on May 30.
He was arrested on March 9 in the case lodged by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and is currently in judicial custody.
The high court made it clear that Sisodia would not interact with the media or any other person except his family, and also not access his phone or the Internet.
