Kejriwal withdraws plea in SC against his arrest, will approach lower court

arvind-kejriwal

NEW DELHI: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has withdrawn from the Supreme Court his plea against arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in the excise policy case. The move comes as Kejriwal will be produced in the trial court today. Sources close to Kejriwal said that he will approach the lower court against the arrest. A special Bench of the top court was scheduled to hear on Friday afternoon the plea filed by Chief Minister Kejriwal seeking quashing of his arrest.

Arvind Kejriwal's move comes hours after the special bench of the Supreme Court rejected the plea of Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader K Kavitha, who was arrested last week in the same case. Earlier, it was announced that the same bench that heard Kavitha's case was assigned to hear Arvind Kejriwal's plea.

The special bench comprising Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Justice MM Sundresh and Justice Bela Trivedi had asked Kavitha to approach the trial court for relief, including bail. Rejecting Kavitha's petition, the bench remarked that it has to follow a uniform policy for all and can't allow people to approach the top court directly for bail as they are political people.
