New Delhi:  AAP leader and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Sunday appeared before the CBI for questioning in the Delhi excise policy scam case.
Ahead of his questioning, the deputy chief minister said he was not afraid of going to jail over “false allegations” “When I left my job as a journalist, my wife supported me and even today, my family is standing by my side. My workers will take care of my family if I get arrested,” he told reporters.

Even if I have to go to jail for a few months, I do not care. We are followers of Bhagat Singh. Bhagat Singh died for the country. If I have to go to jail over such false allegations, it is a small thing”.
Sisodia arrived at the heavily-barricaded CBI office after paying homage to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat.
Police detained several AAP leaders, including Sanjay Singh and Gopal Rai, for protesting near the CBI office. Section 144 has been imposed in the south district, the police said.
