Delhi HC Refuses Interim Relief To Kejriwal

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday refused to grant any interim relief to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, against his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Liquor Policy case.

The court said it would be unfair to not give enough time to ED to submit its report. At the same time, HC has directed the ED to respond within 7 days by April 3 as ED custody of Kejriwal ends on 28 March.

In a plea before the High Court, Kejriwal argued that the ED had not been able to prove his involvement in the case. “The DOE has at the time of arrest failed to establish that Petitioner is guilty of committing activities stipulated under Section 3, i.e., be it one of concealment, possession, acquisition, use of proceeds of crime as much as projecting it as untainted property or claiming it to be so,” Kejriwal’s legal team pleaded.

The AAP chief has further criticised his arrest by the ED saying the entire event was a pre-meditated political vendetta.

Earlier today, Kejriwal’s wife Sunita in a video message, said that in the last two years, the central agency had conducted 250 raids but was unable to find any link with any scam related to her husband. And Kejriwal would do a “big expose” on the alleged “so-called liquor scam” in court on March 28.
