Live | Kejriwal Arrest: Delhi HC Dismisses PIL Seeking Release Of Delhi CM, Imposes Fine On Petitioner

The Delhi High Court dismissed a PIL seeking extraordinary interim bail for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in all criminal cases. While dismissing the plea, the Court imposed a cost of Rs 75,000 on the petitioner.

The bench, led by the Acting Chief Justice of Delhi, stated in the order that this court cannot grant extraordinary interim bail in a pending criminal case against a person holding high office. The court stated that someone is in custody due to a court order. The challenge is currently before the Supreme Court. He is taking action and implementing remedies. The law applies equally to everyone.

The second plea challenges the nine summonses issued by the ED in relation to the money laundering case linked to the nullified excise policy. Justices Suresh Kumar Kait and Manoj Jain will preside over the hearing of these petitions.

On April 9, the high court rejected Kejriwal’s request to challenge his arrest by the investigation agency, stating that his arrest was legal because he had repeatedly ignored summons. Also, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi has extended Kejriwal’s detention until April 23, and he is placed in Tihar jail.

Rouse Avenue Court Reserves Order

Earlier on Friday, the Rouse Avenue court reserved an order on a plea submitted by Kejriwal seeking instructions for Tihar jail officials to provide him with insulin and a permit for a daily 15-minute video consultation with doctors. He filed the petition, citing his severe diabetes condition and blood sugar level fluctuations.
