Liquor policy case; The Supreme Court will hear Arvind Kejriwal’s appeal today

New Delhi: The Supreme Court will hear the appeal of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is in judicial custody, today. The Supreme Court is considering an appeal filed against the Delhi High Court verdict that the Enforcement Directorate’s arrest was legal. A bench comprising Justices Sanjeev Khanna and Dipankar Dutta is hearing the petition.

As part of the procedure, the Supreme Court may seek an explanation from the Enforcement Directorate. Arvind Kejriwal wants ED’s arrest and detention to be declared illegal. But the order of the Delhi High Court was that there was evidence against Arvind Kejriwal and the arrest was not illegal. Arvind Kejriwal approached the Supreme Court against this.

Senior Supreme Court advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi will appear in the Supreme Court on behalf of Arvind Kejriwal. Kejriwal was arrested by the ED on March 21 in the liquor scam case. The trial court remanded him in judicial custody till April 15. Kejriwal is currently in Tihar Jail.
