Supreme Court to hear Arvind Kejriwal's plea against ED arrest in Delhi liquor policy case today

New Delhi.IBNS: The Supreme Court will on Monday hear Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's plea against his arrest in the Delhi liquor policy case on Monday, media reports said.

The matter is in Supreme Court after the Delhi High Court last week denied to give any relief to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo.

The HC held that Kejriwal is allegedly involved in a personal capacity in the formulation of policy and demanding kickbacks and is accountable in the capacity of national convenor of his party AAP.

Kejriwal and the AAP have alleged the arrest was timed for just before the Lok Sabha election to sideline the party's senior-most leaders, including the Chief Minister, and disrupt campaign plans.

Kejriwal's arrest was therefore ruled valid and his plea was dismissed. The court upheld its earlier remand orders - which sent him to the ED's custody and then to Delhi's Tihar Jail till April 15.

Kejriwal is the first sitting Chief Minister to be taken into custody.
