Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Granted Bail in Alleged Excise Policy Case

New Delhi: In a significant development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was granted bail by the Rouse Avenue Court on Thursday in connection with the alleged irregularities in the now-defunct excise policy. The case, which has seen widespread media attention, involves allegations of money laundering investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The court session, presided over by Judge Niyay Bindu, concluded after two days of hearings. During the proceedings, the judge emphasized the importance of expediency and urged lawyers to present their arguments concisely. Earlier, on June 7, the court had rejected Kejriwal’s bail plea following the submission of the ED’s response.

Additionally, the court deliberated on a separate plea by Kejriwal, requesting that his wife, Sunita Kejriwal, be allowed to participate via video conference during his examination by the medical board. The court had reserved its order on this plea as well.

This legal relief comes after Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 due to the alleged policy irregularities. He was briefly granted interim bail on May 10 to participate in the Lok Sabha election campaign, a period which ended on June 2 when he surrendered himself back into custody. On Wednesday, the court had extended Kejriwal’s judicial custody until July 3, pending further proceedings.
