Arvind Kejriwal's Release On Bail Stayed by Delhi High Court After ED's Urgent Mentioning

New Delhi: Fhe Delhi High Court on Friday halted the release of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on bail. This action came after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) contested the trial court's bail decision regarding the Delhi excise policy case.

Significantly, on Thursday, a Delhi court approved bail for Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in the liquor policy scam case upon the submission of a bail bond worth Rs 1 lakh.

Kejriwal was arrested by ED in March 21 this year and had come out on bail during the Lok Sabha elections for campaigning. He surrendered a day after the polling for final and seventh phase of general elections on June 2.

Kejriwal is currently lodged in Delhi's Tihar jail. The ED moved the High Court against the order of the Rouse Avenue Court.

The ED's plea was mentioned before a vacation bench comprising Justices Sudhir Kumar Jain and Ravinder Dudeja.

In its plea, the central agency sought an urgent stay on Kejriwal's release on bail, stating that the lower court announced its order at 8 PM yesterday without giving them an opportunity to oppose the bail.

The High Court then directed a stay on the bail order until it hears the matter. The court has listed the matter for hearing today.
