CBI produces CM Kejriwal before Rouse Avenue Court after 3-day remand

New Delhi, June 29, 2024
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was brought before a city court here by CBI upon the expiry of the 3-day remand in connection with the corruption case linked to the liquor policy case.

CM Kejriwal, on June 26, was sent to CBI custody for three days by Rouse Avenue Court on the agency’s application seeking custody of the Aam Aadmi Party supremo for interrogation.

Earlier that day, CM Kejriwal, when produced before vacation judge Amitabh Rawat, was formally arrested by the CBI.

Permission was granted to CBI to produce CM Kejriwal in the special court after he was questioned by the Central agency in Tihar Jail earlier this week.

In a related development, the AAP supremo had withdrawn his plea filed before the Supreme Court challenging the interim stay ordered by the Delhi High Court on his release on bail in the money laundering case linked to the liquor policy scam case.

Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, representing Kejriwal, had submitted before the vacation bench of Justices Manoj Misra and S. V. N. Bhatti that a fresh plea would be moved before the apex court in view of the latest decision of the Delhi High Court staying the trial court order granting bail to CM Kejriwal in the money laundering case.

In its final verdict pronounced on a plea filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), the Delhi High Court on Tuesday had said that the trial court’s vacation bench did not apply its mind to the entire material and it ought to give equal opportunity to the ED to argue the bail.(Agency)
