Delhi Excise Policy scam: Sisodia produced before CBI court via video conferencing
New Delhi, June 2: Delhi's former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was on Friday produced before a CBI court here via video conferencing in connection with the Excise Policy scam case.
The CBI had recently filed its first supplementary charge sheet in the case in which Sisodia, along with others, has been made accused.
The court has taken cognizance of the charge sheet.
Sisodia was brought to the lock up of the court room from where he was produced before the judge through video conferencing.
The court directed the CBI to provide copies of the charge sheet and relevant documents to all the accused.
It fixed July 6 as the next date of hearing.
During Friday's proceedings, accused Arjun Pandey sought exemption from appearing in court, citing his inability to attend due to him being outside Delhi.
Sisodia, Pandey, Bucchi Babu Gorantla and Amandeep Dhall have been named as accused in the supplementary charge sheet. The CBI made Sisodia as accused number one in its FIR lodged under sections 120-B (Criminal Conspiracy) and 477-A (Falsification of accounts) of the IPC.
