Sanjay Singh: The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate on the petition of Aam Aadmi Party leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi liquor scam case. The next hearing in this case is now to be held in the second week of December. On the petition that the arrest and remand were illegal, the Supreme Court has issued a notice to ED and sought their reply regarding the arrest.

However, the Supreme Court bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti has asked the Center and ED to respond to the notice issued in this case by December 11, 2023.
