6-hour permitted time for Manish Sisodia to see ailing wife
New Delhi : Former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Saturday reached his residence from Tihar jail after he was allowed 6-hour window to meet his ailing wife at Delhi residence.
Manish Sisodia, who is in jail in connection with the alleged liquor scam case, has been permitted by a local Delhi court to meet his wife for six hours between 10 am and 4 pm.
He arrived at his residence on Mathura Road in a prison van at around 10 am. He was accompanied by several police personnel.
Earlier in June, the Delhi High Court had granted permission to Manish Sisodia to meet his wife Seema, who is battling multiple sclerosis. Unfortunately, their meeting could not take place as she was hospitalized due to a sudden deterioration in her condition. Alongside granting permission, the court instructed Manish Sisodia not to engage with the media or participate in any political activities during the visit.
Before the arrest, Manish Sisodia served as the deputy chief minister and held multiple portfolios, including overseeing the Excise Department in the Arvind Kejriwal-led government.
