Delhi Excise Policy: Court Extends Arvind Kejriwal’s Judicial Custody till May 20

Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of CM Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise scam till May 20, 2024.

Kaveri Baweja, the Special Judge for CBI and ED, extended Kejriwal’s custody till May 20 following his appearance before the court via video-conference upon the expiration of his previous custody.

The judge also extended the judicial custody of co-accused Chanpreet Singh until May 20.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has alleged that the AAP leader was involved in the “entire conspiracy of Delhi liquor scam, in drafting and implementation of the policy, for favouring and benefiting from the quid pro, receiving kickbacks and eventually using part of proceeds of crime generated out of the scheduled offence in the campaign for Goa Assembly elections.”
