Sisodia's OSD moves bail plea in bribery case

New Delhi, Feb 14 Bribery accused Gopal Krishna Madhav, an OSD to Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, moved a court for bail in the case on Friday even as Special Judge Santosh Snehi Mann sent him in 14-day judicial custody.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) arrested the Officer on Special Duty, a senior Delhi Tax Department officer, on February 5 on the charge of accepting a bribe of Rs 2 lakh.

In his bail plea, the officer contended that the CBI had kept him in custody for more than seven days and collected all evidence, adding that there was no possibility of him evading proceedings or influencing the investigation.

He claimed that he was falsely implicated in the case. "There is no prima facie evidence to even connect the accused with any such charge," his bail plea read.

Madhav said that the absence of a bribery demand on his part before its alleged acceptance is sufficient to quash the FIR lodged in the matter.
