New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Friday granted an urgent hearing on the plea of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) challenging the bail order of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. This development follows the trial court’s decision to grant bail to Kejriwal in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy Scam. The ED has contested the trial court’s order, arguing that Kejriwal should not be released on bail.

Significantly, the Delhi High Court has also ruled that the trial court’s order will not be implemented until the High Court reviews the case. Consequently, Kejriwal will remain in jail until the High Court concludes its hearing.

The ED arrested Kejriwal concerning the Delhi Excise Policy Scam and has been lodged in jail no. 2. He was recently released on interim bail by the Supreme Court to participate in election campaigning. Following the expiry of his interim bail, Kejriwal surrendered at Tihar Jail and subsequently filed a fresh bail plea before the trial court, which granted him bail.

In connection with the case, 15 individuals, including Aam Aadmi Party members Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Vijay Nair, have been arrested. The ED has filed one Prosecution Complaint and five Supplementary Complaints in this matter.
