Arvind Kejriwal did not get relief from Delhi High Court, stay on bail will continue

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal will remain in Tihar Jail for now. Kejriwal has not got bail from the High Court in the alleged liquor scam case.

The High Court has cancelled Arvind Kejriwal's bail, overturning the decision of Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court.

On June 20, Delhi's Rouse Avenue Court had granted bail to Arvind Kejriwal in this case.

But on the same day, on the petition of ED, the High Court had stayed the decision of Rouse Avenue Court and reserved its decision.

The High Court has said that the documents present in front were not taken into consideration during the hearing on the bail petition.

Apart from this, the High Court also said that the conditions of bail prescribed in the Prevention of Money Laundering Act were not properly discussed by the trial court judge.

Arvind Kejriwal had challenged this stay in the Supreme Court, but the Supreme Court asked the High Court to give a decision in the matter.

Now after the decision of the High Court, the Supreme Court will hear Arvind Kejriwal's petition on Wednesday.

On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) says, 'We do not agree with the High Court's decision. We will go to the Supreme Court. The order on bail cannot be stayed like this, the Supreme Court also said the same yesterday.'

CM Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 this year in connection with the alleged scam in Delhi's excise policy.

Kejriwal, arrested by the ED in a money laundering case, was granted bail by the Rouse Avenue Special Court on June 20. The ED challenged it the next day and the High Court reserved the decision by putting an interim stay on the bail. The Supreme Court said that the High Court has not yet given its decision, so it would not be right to give any order before that. We should wait for the HC order.
