Supreme Court Refuses Urgent Hearing of Kejriwal’s Plea to Extend Bail

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Wednesday refused to hold an urgent hearing of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s plea seeking an extension of his bail in the liquor policy scam case.

Supreme Court’s registry on Wednesday refused to allow urgent listing of Kejriwal’s plea seeking a seven-day extension of his interim bail on health grounds.

On Tuesday, a vacation bench of the Supreme Court refused to allow the urgent hearing, saying it would be appropriate if the Chief Justice of India takes a call on this.

Kejriwal is out on bail which will expire on June 1. Advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, appearing for Kejriwal stated in the plea that an extension of interim bail to one week is required so that medical tests (PET-CT scan) prescribed by the doctors could be conducted.

The AAP chief is supposed to surrender on June 2 to return to the Tihar jail.
