A Delhi court prolonged the judicial custody of former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia until December 22 in connection with the CBI case concerning the purported Delhi excise policy scam on Wednesday.

Special Judge M K Nagpal on Wednesday granted Manish Sisodia's request for instructions to his bank, permitting the provision of a copy of the bank statement for a specific period from his savings account.

In the application, Sisodia said the statement was not being provided to him as the savings account was attached by the ED.

Sisodia further said that he was not aware of the exact amount in his account.

"This application is also allowed and the branch manager of the above bank is being directed to supply a copy of the bank statement... to any of his authorised counsels," the court said.

The court also allowed the application of accused Vijay Nair to supply him with some woollen clothes and twelve books.

Sisodia was apprehended by the CBI on February 26, accused of corruption in the creation and execution of the now-terminated Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22. Subsequently, on March 9, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) arrested Sisodia in Tihar jail in connection with a money laundering case arising from the excise policy issue.
