Former Punjab chief minister and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) patriarch Parkash Singh Badal passed away at the age of 95 on Tuesday. The 95-year-old veteran politician was admitted to the Fortis Hospital in Mohali more than a week ago after he complained of uneasiness while breathing. The five-time former chief minister of Punjab was hospitalised in June last year also following complaints related to gastritis and bronchial asthma.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday filed supplementary charge sheet against former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia in connection with excise policy case. The Special Judge MK Nagpal had earlier decided to reserve the order on the bail plea of Sisodia and fixed April 26 for the pronouncement of the order. Appearing for Manish Sisodia, Senior Advocate Dayan Krishnan submitted that it is not the job of the ED to tell what happened in the GoM and the cabinet, the job of the ED should be to tell that if any crime was committed, and who benefited from it.
