Legal Battle Escalates: Arvind Kejriwal's Petition Moves to Supreme Court

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's legal battle takes a new turn as his petition is scheduled for hearing in the Supreme Court on April 15 (Monday). Kejriwal, a prominent leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has contested the legality of his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), terming it as unlawful. Initially, Kejriwal had filed a petition in the Delhi High Court challenging his arrest, but faced a setback when the High Court upheld the validity of the ED's action, citing limited options for the investigating agency. Seeking urgent redressal, Kejriwal has now turned to the highest judicial authority in the country.

The ED arrested CM Kejriwal on March 21, following which he was remanded to judicial custody until April 15, and is presently detained in Tihar Jail. The recent ruling by the High Court, dismissing his plea, has propelled Kejriwal to escalate his legal battle to the Supreme Court, with a plea for expedited relief, as reported by 'Aaj Tak'.

In addition to the legal challenges, Kejriwal and his party have encountered a series of setbacks in recent days. Following the High Court's rejection of his petition, the Rouse Avenue Court denied his request for increased access to legal counsel. Moreover, his cabinet minister Rajkumar Anand tendered his resignation from both the party and his official position. Furthermore, CM Kejriwal's personal secretary, Vibhav Kumar, faced dismissal from his role. Amidst these developments, Kejriwal's plea is slated for hearing in the Supreme Court next week.

Notably, Arvind Kejriwal's lawyer, Abhishek Manu Singhvi, communicated with Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud, highlighting discrepancies in the High Court's order, alleging crucial information was concealed from them. In response, Justice Chandrachud assured appropriate action in the matter.
