Kejriwal Moves Supreme Court to Extend His Bail on Health Grounds

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal moved the Supreme Court urging for an extension of his interim bail by seven days on health grounds in a money-laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi excise policy scam.

Kejriwal’s interim bail ends on June 2. As per the court order, he has to return to Tihar jail on June 2.

In his plea before the Supreme Court, Kejriwal stated that he lost 7 kg after his arrest and his ketone levels are very high. Kejriwal said he was undergoing tests, including PET and CT scans at a Delhi hospital.

On May 10, the Supreme Court granted him interim bail for 21 days to enable him to campaign for the Lok Sabha polls. But the apex court barred him from visiting his office or the Delhi secretariat and signing official files unless absolutely necessary for obtaining the lieutenant governor’s approval.
