Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday moved High Court challenging his arrest and the order of remand passed by the trial court on Friday, March 22. The plea in Delhi High Court stated that both the arrest and the remand order are illegal and Kejriwal is entitled to be released from custody immediately.

The High Court denied an urgent listing of the plea filed by AAP convener Kejriwal. The matter will be now listed on Wednesday, as per reports.

According to the Delhi Chief Minister’s legal team, an immediate hearing has been sought from the acting Chief Justice, Justice Manmohan, preferably by March 24.

On March 21, Kejriwal was interrogated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at the Delhi CM’s residence in the 2021-2022 Delhi liquor policy case. During ED’s search operation, Kejriwal was arrested amidst dramatic circumstances as the AAP chief failed to obtain interim protection from arrest in the Delhi excise policy case from the Delhi High Court earlier.

The city court on March 22 granted seven days of custody of Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal to ED till March 28 for Kejriwal’s detailed and sustained interrogation regarding his role in the alleged Delhi excise policy case.

The Delhi CM on March 22 withdrew his petition in the apex court against his arrest by the ED, as the party decided to contest the ED custody first.

Earlier in the day, Delhi Minister Atishi said that ED has failed to establish a money trail against any AAP leader despite multiple raids, arrests and a two-year-long investigation into the alleged liquor policy scam.

During the press conference, Atishi claimed that the money trail was in fact found in the BJP’s account and challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and ED to arrest the BJP national president JP Nadda.  

The AAP leader also said that P Sarath Chandra Reddy, head of Aurobindo Pharma, was arrested by the ED in November in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. He has donated crores of money to the BJP through electoral Bonds, Atishi claimed.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on Saturday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for inciting people and dividing society through his election speeches. Kharge was addressing a press conference of the INDIA bloc, where Shiv Sena (UBT) president, Uddhav Thackeray NCP (SP) chief Sharad Pawar and other leaders were present.

Kharge said no prime minister before Modi has ever indulged in inciting people like he has been doing. He said the prime minister speaks about democracy repeatedly but does not adhere to the tenets of democracy. Responding to PM Modi’s statement that the Congress will bulldoze the Ram mandir in Ayodhya and also restore Article 370 if the INDIA bloc is voted to power Kharge said, they have never used a bulldozer on anyone. The Congress president said PM Modi has the habit of lying and inciting people about things which Congress will never do or the things that are impossible to be implemented.

Kharge further added that he is not answerable to Modi and the Congress will implement what they have promised in their election manifesto. He accused PM Modi of creating divisions wherever he went he tries to create division, speaks of dividing society. Kharge further added that PM Modi had described the Congress manifesto as Muslim League manifesto, but now he is calling it as a Maoist manifesto.

The Congress President assured that reservation has been enshrined in the Constitution which will continue and nobody can touch it. Speaking at the press conference Thackeray said, Achche din are coming from June 4 (when Lok Sabha election results will be declared) when INDIA bloc-led government will come to power at the centre. Thackeray pointed out PM Modi calls Shiv Sena (UBT) as the nakli (fake) Shiv Sena, and there is a possibility that tomorrow he may call RSS as nakli Sangh.

On Friday, the Delhi Police took Swati Maliwal to the Delhi chief minister’s residence to recreate the crime scene. Her statement was recorded before a magistrate at the Tis Hazari court. A counter-complaint has been filed by Bibhav Kumar with the Civil Lines police station in which he alleged that Maliwal had forcefully and unauthorised entered the Delhi CM’s residence.

 He also claimed that the former Delhi Commission for Women chairperson tried to create a ruckus and assault him. Kejriwal’s aide also claimed that the Rajya Sabha MP intended to harm the AAP chief and he strongly objected. Bibhav Kumar said a copy of the FIR has been sent to all the media houses by the BJP but BJP’s police are saying that they cannot give it to the accused.
