Kejriwal Moves Supreme Court After Delhi High Court Setback

New Delhi: After the Delhi High Court dismissed his petition challenging his arrest in the liquor policy case on Wednesday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is set to approach the Supreme Court with the plea on Thursday.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader’s counsel will raise the matter before Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud seeking an urgent hearing.

On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court dismissed Kejriwal’s petition challenging his arrest by the ED on March 21. The court held that the central agency was left with “little option” after the AAP leader skipped multiple summonses in the money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam. The court stressed that there is no separate protocol for a probe agency to follow for questioning a common man and a Chief Minister.

Earlier, Mr Kejriwal had approached the Supreme Court a day after he was arrested, but later withdrew his petition to raise the matter in the trial court.

Former Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and senior AAP leader Manish Sisodia is in jail in the same case. AAP MP Sanjay Singh, who was arrested in the same case, is out now on bail.
