New CBI corruption case against jailed AAP leader Manish Sisodia

Manish Sisodia was arrested by the CBI on February 26.

New Delhi:

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) today registered a case against jailed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia for alleged corruption in the Feedback Unit (FBU) of the Delhi government.

The Feedback Unit was formed by the AAP after it came to power in Delhi in 2015.

“The illegal manner of establishing and operating the feedback unit has caused unjustified loss to the public treasury in the amount of approximately Rs 36 Lakhs,” the CBI claimed.

Reacting strongly to another case against the jailed AAP leader, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal called the move “sad for the country”.

“The prime minister’s plan is to slap several bogus cases against Manish and keep him in custody for a long time. Sad for the country!” Mr. Kejriwal tweeted.

In February, the Union Home Office (MHA) gave the green light to prosecute Mr Sisodia under the Prevention of Corruption Act. A CBI report alleged that Mr Sisodia was using the feedback unit as a tool for “political espionage”.

While the BJP has called for a complaint against Mr Sisodia and the AAP, Chief Minister Kejriwal has refuted the allegations, calling them “politically motivated”.

Mr Sisodia, the former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, was arrested by the CBI on February 26 for alleged corruption in the formulation and implementation of Delhi’s now scrapped excise policy for 2021- 2022.
