Delhi Liquor Policy Case: CBI Arrests CM Arvind Kejriwal from Tihar Jail – N.F Times

New Delhi: The court on Tuesday approved a warrant for the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to present Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal before the court on Wednesday in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. The agency informed the court that it had found new evidence against Kejriwal.

On Monday, the CBI interrogated Kejriwal in Tihar Jail. Today, the agency approached the court for his detention.

The trial court had granted bail to Kejriwal on June 20 in the money laundering case arising from the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, ordering his release on a personal bond of Rs 1 lakh.

However, earlier on Tuesday, the Delhi High Court upheld the trial court’s order that granted bail to Kejriwal in the money laundering case related to the alleged excise policy scam.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday claimed that the BJP-led central government is plotting to arrest Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the alleged excise policy scam, ahead of the Supreme Court’s hearing on his bail plea in the ED’s money laundering case.

AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh claimed that the CBI might lodge a false case against the CM to detain him.

“At a time when there is a cent per cent possibility that Arvind Kejriwal will get bail from the Supreme Court, sources have informed me that the Centre is conspiring to register a fake CBI case against the Delhi CM and get him arrested by the CBI. The entire nation can see this and is standing in solidarity with Arvind Kejriwal,” he said.
