Delhi HC Blocks Kejriwal’s Bail

| Updated: June 21, 2024 12:26

The Delhi High Court on Friday suspended the bail granted to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal following a petition from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), which challenged the trial court’s decision in the money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy.

The High Court instructed that the bail order would remain ineffective until it heard the matter. “The bail order remains ineffective as we have yet to issue a final decision. You may present your arguments in full,” the court stated, pausing the release of Kejriwal. The High Court has scheduled the matter for a hearing later on Friday.

A day after the Rouse Avenue Court granted bail to Delhi Chief Minister, the ED approached the Delhi High Court on Friday to challenge the trial court’s decision. The ED is expected to request an urgent hearing on the matter.

Although Kejriwal was scheduled for release on Friday, the bail order had not yet reached the jail. Earlier, on Thursday, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi granted bail to him. The order was issued by vacation Judge Nyay Bindu after reserving it earlier in the day.

Following the court’s decision, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) made a request for a 48-hour window to allow Kejriwal to sign the bail bond. This would enable them to challenge the verdict before a higher court. However, the judge declined to stay the order, paving the way for Kejriwal’s release.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo was expected to walk out of Tihar Jail on Friday upon paying a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh.

Kejriwal’s arrest by the ED on March 21 had unfolded dramatically just ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. In May, he was granted interim bail by the Supreme Court, taking into account the general elections. However, he was required to surrender on June 2.
