Delhi Excise Policy Case: Arvind Kejriwal’s Judicial Custody Extended to July 3

A Delhi court has extended the judicial custody of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Vinod Chauhan until July 3 in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy case. This decision was made by the Rouse Avenue Court on Wednesday, following the expiration of their previous judicial custody.

Arvind Kejriwal’s Judicial Custody Extended to July


Kejriwal and Chauhan were produced before the court via video conferencing from Tihar Jail. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had arrested Kejriwal on March 21 over allegations of corruption related to the now-scrapped Delhi liquor policy. The court had earlier dismissed Kejriwal’s application for interim bail on medical grounds on June 5.

Allegations and Evidence
During the court session, ED’s counsel claimed that Vinod Chauhan had received Rs 25 crores from the personal assistant of BRS leader K Kavitha through Abhishek Boinpally for the Goa election. The ED also indicated that a prosecution complaint against Chauhan would be filed by the end of the month. Chauhan was arrested in May.

ED’s Case Against Kejriwal
The ED asserted that it had substantial evidence linking Kejriwal to significant economic offences. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja was informed by the central probe agency of the incriminating evidence they had gathered against Kejriwal, which formed the basis for opposing his application for regular bail in the money laundering case related to the alleged excise scam.
