Manish Sisodia’s bail denied by Delhi judge in CBI case involving the Delhi Excise Policy fraud.

Manish Sisodia, the former deputy chief minister of Delhi, was refused bail on Friday by Delhi court in the corruption case brought by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in connection with the purported Delhi excise policy case.
