During the plea's arguments, Singh's counsel highlighted discrepancies in statements, particularly between accused-turned-approver Dinesh Arora and other witnesses, regarding allegations of bribes paid to Singh.

Opposing Singh's bail plea, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) emphasized the ongoing nature of the investigation, expressing concerns that Singh's release could potentially disrupt the probe, tamper with evidence, and influence witnesses.

Adding a political dimension, the Election Commission announced the upcoming elections for four Rajya Sabha seats, including three from Delhi and one from Sikkim, scheduled for January 19. Notably, the tenure of Sanjay Singh, Sushil Kumar Gupta, and Narain Dass Gupta, all AAP representatives, concludes on January 27 next year.
