Delhi High Court Stays Arvind Kejriwal’s Bail

Date:

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday issued a stay on the trial court’s decision to grant bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering case linked to an alleged excise policy scam.

A vacation bench led by Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain has temporarily suspended the bail order granted to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal until a final decision is made on the stay application filed by the ED. The court issued the order in response to the ED’s petition challenging the trial court’s decision to grant bail to Kejriwal.

Earlier, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) had approached the Delhi High Court challenging the trial court’s decision to grant bail to Kejriwal in the Delhi Excise policy money laundering case. The ED has urged the High Court to stay the trial court’s order.

The Delhi High Court agreed to consider the ED’s plea for an urgent hearing on the appeal against the trial court’s bail order. The High Court indicated that the case file will be presented before the bench within 10-15 minutes.

This development follows the Rouse Avenue Court’s decision on Thursday to grant regular bail to Kejriwal, despite opposition from the ED. The vacation judge, Nyay Bindu, granted the bail upon Kejriwal furnishing a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh.

Arvind Kejriwal was initially arrested on March 21 this year in connection with the money laundering case. Subsequently, on May 10, the Supreme Court granted him interim bail until June 1 to enable him to campaign for the Lok Sabha elections.

The case pertains to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Excise policy, with the ED investigating potential money laundering activities. The trial court’s decision to grant bail was a significant development, but the ED’s swift move to challenge this decision underscores the ongoing legal battle.

The Delhi High Court’s upcoming hearing will be closely watched as it could impact the course of the case and Kejriwal’s political activities amid the ongoing investigation.
