NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Friday sent Gopal Krishna Madhav, the officer on special duty (OSD) to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Manish Sisodia, to 14-day judicial custody in a bribery case.

Following this, he was sent to the agency's custody which was again extended till February 14. He was produced before Special Judge Santosh Snehi Mann at Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court on Friday after his remand period ended.
