New Delhi: The Supreme Court today reserved its verdict on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s petition challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise scam but granted him liberty to move the trial court for regular bail.

A bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta reserved its judgement after hearing senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi and Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, who appeared for Kejriwal and the Enforcement Directorate, respectively.

The Delhi chief minister was arrested on 21sth March in the money laundering case in which the apex court enlarged him on interim bail from May 10 to June 1 for campaigning in the Lok Sabha elections. It ordered him to surrender on 2nd June and go back to jail.

The matter relates to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and execution of the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22, which has now been scrapped.
