New Delhi, Jun 9 (PTI) A Delhi court on Friday dismissed the bail applications of city businessman Amandeep Singh Dhal in corruption and money laundering cases related to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam being probed by the CBI and ED respectively, saying his role was "serious and grave".

Special Judge M K Nagpal denied relief to Dhal, a director of Brindco Sales, who allegedly conspired with accused, and was "actively" involved in the formulation of the liquor policy and facilitating kickbacks to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and its recoupment by the 'South Group' through various means.

The court observed the role played by Dhal in alleged money laundering was more grave and serious than the actions of some of the other co-accused.
