Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been sent to judicial custody until July 12 in connection with a money laundering case related to a now-scrapped excise policy.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) requested 14 days of judicial custody, stating it was necessary for the investigation and justice. Kejriwal had been in CBI custody for three days following questioning at Tihar Jail.

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 by the Enforcement Directorate in connection with an alleged money laundering case related to the excise policy.

His legal situation faced a setback on Tuesday when the Delhi High Court stayed a trial court’s decision granting him bail in the ED case.

On Wednesday, Arvind Kejriwal was formally arrested by the CBI in a corruption case and presented before Special Judge Amitabh Rawat at the Rouse Avenue court.

While the ED case focuses on investigating an alleged money trail, the CBI’s case aims to establish corruption and bribe-taking by public servants.

The CBI had initiated a corruption case under the Prevention of Corruption Act (PC Act) in 2022, although Kejriwal was not initially named as an accused in that case.
