Delhi Excise Policy: ED Moves HC against Bail Granted to Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Excise Policy

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) approached the Delhi High Court on Friday, challenging the bail granted to CM Arvind Kejriwal in the money laundering case linked to the alleged excise scam.

The matter is expected to be brought up shortly in the high court for an urgent hearing.

The ED has challenged Rouse Avenue Court order that granted bail to the Delhi Chief Minister.

On March 21, AAP supremo was taken into custody by the ED, shortly after his petition seeking protection from arrest was denied by the Delhi High Court.

On May 10, the Supreme Court granted interim bail to Kejriwal until June 1 for campaigning in the Lok Sabha elections, with the condition that he surrender and return to jail on June 2. Kejriwal complied and has been in Tihar jail since June 2. On June 5, the trial court denied his interim bail plea, citing various health issues.

On June 19, the same trial court that initially granted him bail extended his judicial custody until July 3, 2024.
