KEY UPDATES

  • US State Department spokesperson said it is monitoring reports of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest and called on New Delhi to ensure “a fair and timely legal process” for the jailed Aam Aadmi Party leader.
  • The US State Department’s comments came after Germany’s Foreign Office highlighted Kejriwal’s right to a fair trial, sparking a strong reaction from India, which accused Germany of interfering in its internal affairs. The US spokesperson, in response to India’s protest, directed inquiries to the German Foreign Ministry.
