Supreme Court says it can consider Kejriwal's interim bail due to ongoing Lok Sabha polls

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 03 May 2024, 06:58 pm

The Supreme Court on Friday told the Enforcement Directorate that it may consider the question of interim bail for Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal due to the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.

The apex court even directed the ED counsel to come prepared on this aspect when it takes up the matter on Tuesday.

“We may grant or we may not grant. But we must be open to you as neither side should be taken by surprise," a bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta was quoted as saying by Hindustan Times, alerting both sides to not assume that the court will grant bail.

Kejriwal was arrested on March 21  in a money laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi liquor policy.

He will remain in judicial custody till May 7.

The Delhi High Court on April 9 ruled it found nothing illegal about Kejriwal's arrest.
