arvind-kejriwal

NEW DELHI: The Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi extended till May 7 the judicial custody of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and BRS leader K Kavitha in the money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy scam case.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja passed the orders upon the expiry of the previously-granted judicial custody. With the court extending the custody by 14 days, both Kejriwal and Kavitha will have to remain in the Tihar jail for the next two weeks. They will be produced in court on May 7.

The other day, the court had declined a plea moved by Kejriwal seeking direction to jail authorities to administer insulin and allow him to consult through video conferencing daily for 15 minutes with respect to his acute diabetes and fluctuating blood sugar level.

The court issued the order after considering the jail authorities' explanation that doctors are on duty 24 hours a day in the jail and that Kejriwal's sugar level is being checked twice a day. The court also observed that one person alone cannot be given special consideration in jail.

The ED arrested CM Kejriwal on March 21 after questioning him for over two hours at his official residence in Delhi.

The ED has termed CM Kejriwal the "kingpin and the key conspirator" of the alleged excise policy scam in collusion with other ministers of the Delhi government, AAP leaders, and other persons.
