Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Remanded to Three-Day CBI Custody in Excise Policy Case

In a significant development, Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, has been remanded to three days of CBI custody following his arrest earlier on Wednesday. The arrest is connected to a money laundering investigation concerning the now-defunct Delhi excise policy.

The decision was handed down by the vacation judge, Amitabh Rawat, of Rouse Avenue Court. Kejriwal is slated to be presented before the court again on June 29, prior to 7:00 PM.

This court ruling came shortly after the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) took Kejriwal into custody amid allegations tied to the controversial excise policy, which has been a subject of intense scrutiny and debate. The policy in question was scrapped following allegations of financial misconduct and procedural lapses that allegedly benefited certain liquor businesses at the expense of the state’s revenue.

“The application for PC (police custody) remand allowed for 3 days. He will be produced on 29 before 7 PM,” stated the court during the proceedings.
