Kejriwal, Kavitha to Stay in Jail Till May 7, Delhi Court Extends Custody by 14 Days

New Delhi: A Delhi court on Tuesday extended the judicial custody of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, BRS leader K Kavitha and AAP’s alleged fund manager for Goa elections Chanpreet Singh, till May 7 in connection with the money laundering case linked to the now shelved Delhi excise policy.

All three accused were produced before the court through video conference.

The Rouse Avenue court also extended the judicial custody of Kavitha till May 7 in the CBI case related to the now scrapped policy.

The court’s decision comes a day after the court rejected the Aam Aadmi Party convenor’s plea seeking to allow him daily 15 minutes of medical consultation with his doctor in the presence of his wife Sunita Kejriwal.

The Delhi court directed that Tihar jail authorities shall concern a medical board constituted by AIIMS director consisting of an endocrinologist and a diabetologist.

Kejriwal was administered a “low dose” of insulin after his blood sugar level spiked on Monday evening.

Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Kavitha, the daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, is in judicial custody in both the cases lodged by the ED and the CBI. The ED had arrested Chanpreet Singh, the individual who allegedly managed Aam Aadmi Party’s funds for Goa assembly elections 2022, procured through alleged bribes in the Delhi excise policy.
