Tamil Nadu CM wrote a letter to PM Modi; Demanded the release of Sisodia

AAP leader Manish Sisodia, lodged in Tihar Jail on charges of alleged scam in Delhi's Excise Policy case, has got the support of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin. He has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday demanding the unconditional release of the former Deputy CM of Delhi. He appealed to take all steps for this.
Stalin wrote- I am saddened to know that Manish Sisodia has been arrested on false charges. They are being tortured while depriving them of the constitutional guarantee of personal liberty.
The Chief Minister wrote in the letter that all the principles of the criminal justice system have been put on hold. The ruling party at the Center is misusing the due process of law for personal satisfaction. In the last nine years, the party in power at the Center has misused the investigative agencies. Agencies are being used to harass political leaders of opposition parties.
Stalin said that misuse of investigative agencies and constitutional offices including the office of the Governor can never strengthen a vibrant democracy in India. I hope you will agree that different ideologies and multiple political parties are the heartbeats of Indian democracy. Similarly, the rule of law and individual liberty are the cornerstones of our judicial system. Therefore, I appeal to you to direct the unconditional release of Manish Sisodia.
Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia has been arrested in the Delhi liquor scam. Sisodia was sent to judicial custody till March 20 by Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court on Monday itself. Sisodia was arrested on February 26 last month. In the hearing held on Monday, Special CBI Judge MK Nagpal sent Sisodia to judicial custody for 14 days.
The CBI counsel had said that further remand of Sisodia is not being sought, but in the next 15 days, if needed, custody can be sought again.
