The court asked questions about the summons

The court asked what language the court has used in sending the summons to Arvind Kejriwal? The ASG said he was kept to order. The court said that if it is placed for an order, we need a copy of the order. I would like to see it for reference. The court asked the ASG to discuss the issues raised by Arvind Kejriwal. The court said that we want you to refute the specific grounds that you have raised.

ASG said Kejriwal is guilty under PMLA

The ASG said that he cannot be granted bail if he is found guilty of any offense under the PMLA. According to the law, you have to show that you are not guilty under PMLA. The ASG further said that he says that I am not involved in any crime, not involved in the IPC offence, but this is not relevant. If there is a crime that shows of course you were there. ASG said CBI has exposed Arvind Kejriwal’s role. He did not plead guilty or not guilty. He also said that the credibility of a witness’s statement is a matter of trial. ASG said he gave another argument that the material was already available. This is not a ground for grant of bail under PMLA. Time is irrelevant.

What was said on Kejriwal’s interim bail?

The ASG said he said you arrested me because you did not want me to contest the elections. The Supreme Court has taken care of this matter. The ASG cited the Supreme Court’s order granting interim bail to Arvind Kejriwal and said the surrender period had not been extended. Please note that this order was to allow them to preach. The ASG further said that Kejriwal sought interim bail, but his bail was rejected.

The ASG said Kejriwal knew that the nature of the Supreme Court order was different, so he filed the petition on medical grounds, that order was not challenged. These were not regular interim bails, they were given only for elections. Arvind Kejriwal’s lawyer Vivek Jain said that we have never relied on the Supreme Court order on the merits of the case.
