Delhi CM Kejriwal Seeks Immediate Release In HC

| Updated: March 23, 2024 19:11

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday, has termed his arrest and subsequent remand to ED’s custody as illegal. He has approached the high court for an urgent hearing and is seeking immediate release.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief was taken into custody in relation to a money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam. The Rouse Avenue court in Delhi granted the ED seven-day custody of Mr. Kejriwal on Friday.

On Saturday, Mr. Kejriwal challenged his arrest and the remand order in the Delhi High Court, terming them as illegal. He has sought an urgent hearing from the acting chief justice of the high court by Sunday, claiming that he is entitled to immediate release from custody.

Interestingly, the Delhi High Court had refused to grant Mr. Kejriwal protection from arrest on Thursday. Hours later, he was taken into custody by the ED. “We have heard both sides, and we are not inclined at this stage (to grant protection). The respondent (ED) is at liberty to file a reply,” a two-judge bench had stated.

In a message read by his wife Sunita Kejriwal earlier on Saturday, the chief minister urged AAP workers to continue their work for society and not harbor hatred towards anyone, including members of the BJP. The AAP alleges that the BJP has misused agencies and targeted opposition leaders like him.

Mr. Kejriwal stated, “There are several forces within and outside India that are weakening the country. There is no jail that can keep me behind bars for long. I will come out soon and keep my promises.”
