AAP MP Sanjay Singh walks out of Tihar jail

The Aam Aadmi Party‘s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh was released from Tihar jail on Wednesday after the procession of his bail order was completed. After his release, Singh left for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence where he met his wife Sunita.

This is a time for struggle and our jailed leaders will also come out soon, said the Rajya Sabha MP.

“This is the time to struggle. The biggest leaders of our party (AAP) – Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain – have been kept behind the bars. I am confident that one day the locks of this prison will be broken and they will come out. This is why I want to say that this is not the time to celebrate, this is the time to struggle.”

Arvind Kejriwal will not resign, he will continue to work for 2 crore people of Delhi, said Singh.

“I will obey the court’s instructions and will not talk about my case. But, I will talk about the case of Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia. I just want to say that our leaders are 100 per cent honest, and attempts to intimidate them, file cases against them, and send them to jail should be stopped,” he added.

Singh said, “I saw tears in eyes of Arvind Kejriwal’s wife, Delhi’s 2 crore people will give reply to BJP for these tears.”

Singh had been lodged in the high-security prison in Delhi since October 13, 2023. He came out at 8.11 pm through the gate number three.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday granted him bail in a money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy scam after the Enforcement Directorate said it had no objections.

Counsel for Sanjay Singh stated that the appellant Sanjay Singh will not make any comment about his role in the present case.

A three-bench led by Justice Sanjiv Khanna directed to release of Sanjay Singh on bail during the pendency of proceedings in a money laundering case relating to excise policy irregularities.

Beside Justice Khanna, other judges on the bench were Justices Dipankar Datta and Prasanna Bhalachandra Varale.

Sanjay Singh was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on October 4, 2023, in the case.

According to ED, Sanjay Singh was alleged to be involved in creating a special purpose vehicle to launder the proceeds of crime that would have been generated from the business arising out of the policy changes as conspired by him and his co-conspirators.

ED also stated that Sanjay Singh has had certain confidential documents about the investigation of this case that are not in the public domain.

Sanjay Singh in the Delhi High Court denied charges.
