Arvind Kejriwal granted bail in Delhi liquor case

Delhi. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal granted bail in liquor scam case. Proceedings belong to Delhi Rose Avenue Court. The court rejected the Enforcement Directorate’s plea not to grant bail. The court has directed that one lakh rupees be deposited as bail. Today, the court heard the case. The court rejected the ED’s request to stay the bail order.

The accused, who was arrested earlier in the case, had paid Kejriwal’s hotel bill in Goa and the ED had alleged in the court that he had received huge sums of money from businessmen. The ED argued in the court that the accused Vijay Nair, who is a Malayali, handled the corrupt money on Kejriwal’s instructions and if the Aam Aadmi Party was at fault then the party chief was also guilty.

Kejriwal’s lawyer had argued that the ED was making speculations as allegations. Kejriwal’s counsel had argued that there was no evidence that instructions were given to Vijay Nair, that the bail was conditional imprisonment and that the bail should be granted to discharge his responsibilities as Chief Minister.
