Delhi Excise Policy Case: Major setback for Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi High Court puts on hold the release order

PTC News Desk: In an unfortunate turn of events, Arvind Kejriwal's release order in a corruption case involving the Delhi Liquor Policy was postponed by the Delhi High Court till the Enforcement Directorate's petition was heard. Just hours before Mr. Kejriwal was set to be released from Tihar jail, the ED contested his bail in the case today. 

A Delhi court yesterday authorised Mr. Kejriwal's release on a Rs 1 lakh personal bail. However, the court placed restrictions on Mr. Kejriwal's release, stating that he would not attempt to obstruct the inquiry or sway the witnesses.


While developing the Delhi liquor strategy for 2021–2022, the ED detained Mr. Kejriwal on March 21 on suspicion of money laundering. The policy was ultimately canceled due to concerns voiced by the Lieutenant Governor. Since Mr. Kejriwal is the AAP convenor, the ED has claimed that the money he received from the liquor vendors was utilized to finance the party's campaign in Goa.
