Arvind Kejriwal's ED custody extended till April 1; Delhi CM says ED trying to crush his party

Rouse Avenue Court has extended the ED custody of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal by 4 more days in the liquor policy case. Now he will remain in custody till April 1. Before this, the hearing went on in the court for about 40 minutes. Kejriwal himself pleaded his case. He has become the first sitting CM of the country to do so.

ED had sought 7 more days' custody of Kejriwal from the court. After hearing the arguments, Rouse Avenue Court had reserved the decision. 

Earlier today, Kejriwal was granted the opportunity to speak directly to the court. In his concise yet fervent address, he leveled accusations against the probe agency, alleging their attempt to "crush" his party.

He highlighted, echoing assertions made by the AAP since his arrest, that none of the purported Rs 100 crore in bribes had been recovered. Additionally, he emphasized that no court had rendered a verdict of guilt against him.

Protesting against his arrest, Kejriwal said that my name has appeared at only four places in this case. Four statements were given and among them, the statement in which I was implicated was brought before the court. Are these 4 statements enough to arrest a Chief Minister?

In response to this, ED said – The Chief Minister is not above the law. At the same time, while going to appear in the court, he was asked that the LG had said that the government will not run from jail. In response to this, Kejriwal said that this is a political conspiracy, the public will answer for it.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal's wife Sunita said that his health is not good. Your Chief Minister is being harassed a lot. The public will give the reply. ED had arrested Kejriwal on March 21. Kejriwal was sent to 7-day custody by the court. His custody was going to end today. ED presented him in the special court located at Rouse Avenue, Delhi.
