Kejriwal Bail: Notice to ED on CM Kejriwal’s bail plea, hearing to be held on June 1

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has filed a bail application in the Rouse Avenue Court. On his plea, the court has issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate. The court will now hear the case on June 1. Arvind Kejriwal’s plea was heard in the court of Special Judge Kaveri Baveja of Rouse Avenue Court.

ASG SV Raju, appearing for the ED, opposed the bail plea, saying Kejriwal was campaigning in Punjab and seeking bail on medical grounds. The court has issued a notice to the ED seeking its reply. Kejriwal has sought 7-day interim bail on grounds of regularity and health.

The Supreme Court has granted interim bail

The application has been filed for regular bail, while Kejriwal is currently on interim bail and has to surrender on June 2. Arvind Kejriwal was sent to jail in an alleged corruption case related to the Delhi Liquor Policy. He was arrested by the ED on March 21. Kejriwal was interrogated in ED custody for several days and was sent to Tihar Jail in judicial custody on 1 April.

Kejriwal once approached the Supreme Court even before the date of surrender approached. Kejriwal appealed to the court to extend his interim bail by one week. Kejriwal cited his ill health as the reason, but the Supreme Court did not accept his appeal and refused to extend interim bail.
