Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who was arrested in the excise policy scam case, has been sent to the judicial custody by the Rouse Avenue Court till 5 April. Manish Sisodia appeared before the Delhi court at the end of his remand period in a money laundering case pertaining to alleged irregularities in the framing and implementation of the excise policy of GNCTD.

The ED didn't seek further remand and moved an application for judicial custody. Noted this, Special Judge MK Nagpal sent Sisodia to judicial custody.

During the hearing, Manish Sisodia urged the court to allow him to carry some religious and spiritual books during his judicial custody. To which, the court has asked him to move an application in this regard, and said, “we will allow".

On the last date of the hearing, while passing the order on remand extension the same Court said, "It cannot be ignored that investigation into an ED case is a complicated affair and keeping in view the intricacies of the case, the multiplicity of the persons/accused involved in the commission of the alleged offence of money laundering and the huge volume of the records or data seized during the investigation and required to be analyzed by the Investigating Agency, it is bound to take some time and the IO or Investigating Agency cannot be faulted or blamed for the same, though they are duty bound to do and conclude it as early as possible."

During the last hearing, Special Judge MK Nagpal noted that while the remand application did not explicitly state the need for the accused to remain in ED custody for tracing the proceeds of the crime, it cannot be overlooked that the investigation of this case is primarily focused on determining the volume of proceeds of crime and the involvement of various individuals in formulating or executing the policy in question.
