Arvind Kejriwal Challenges Arrest in High Court

In a significant legal move, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has approached the Delhi High Court, challenging the legality of his arrest and the subsequent remand order handed down by a trial court on March 22. The plea, lodged by Kejriwal’s legal team, contests the lawfulness of both the arrest made by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the custody order that followed.

Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party’s national convener, was taken into custody late Thursday in connection with allegations of corruption tied to Delhi’s excise policy. The remand to custody until March 28 was ordered by Special Judge Kaveri Baweja of the Rouse Avenue court, with a directive for Kejriwal to reappear before the court on March 28 at 2 pm.

The plea filed in the High Court argues for Kejriwal’s immediate release, branding the arrest and remand as unlawful. The Chief Minister’s legal team is pushing for an urgent hearing, requesting that the matter be brought before the acting Chief Justice by Sunday, March 24.
