New Delhi: The hearing of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea in the Liquor Policy scam case has been postponed to April 29. The action is based on the petition filed by Kejriwal.

At the same time, the Supreme Court has asked the ED to respond to the notice on Kejriwal’s petition by April 24.
A two-judge bench comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Dutta heard the petition. Kejriwal was booked by ED on March 21 in the liquor case. Arrested. After this, the High Court rejected Kejriwal’s contention that his arrest and remand were illegal.

The Supreme Court considered Kejriwal’s petition today. It is said in the petition that the ED’s action in the liquor policy corruption case is politically motivated and the ED has taken illegal action when the Lok Sabha elections are around the corner. The Delhi High Court had earlier dismissed the petition with the same demand. Earlier, the High Court had dismissed Kejriwal’s plea and upheld the ED’s contention that the Chief Minister was involved in the liquor policy scam.
