Delhi HC reserves order on ED’s bail plea, CM Kejriwal to remain in jail

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday reserved its order on the Enforcement Directorate’s plea seeking a stay on the release of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on bail.

A Delhi court on Thursday granted bail to the Chief Minister in connection with a money laundering case related to the now-scrapped excise policy, but the high court has stayed the order till it pronounces its final order on ED’s plea, which also means that the CM will remain in judicial custody.

The high court said that it would pass its order in two to three days.

The ED on Thursday had sought a 48-hour deferral in signing the bail bond following the pronouncement of the order. However, the trial court firmly denied the ED’s plea for a stay.

On Friday, the ED moved High Court challenging the lower court’s bail order. The plea was urgently mentioned before a vacation bench comprising Justices Sudhir Kumar Jain and Ravinder Dudeja by Additional Solicitor General, S.V. Raju, on behalf of the ED.
