Delhi Chief Minister & AAP Supremo Arvind Kejriwal on Friday was sent to 6 days custodial remand to the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The Rouse Avenue Court had reserved the order on ED seeking 10 days custodial remand of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. Arvind Kejriwal was arrested on late Thursday night after two hours of questioning at his residence by the ED. AAP Supremo was arrested hours after the Delhi High Court refused to give him interim protection from arrest in the excise policy case. Special CBI judge Kaveri Baweja passed the order on Arvind Kejriwal's remand. Delhi CM will remain on ED's remand till March 28, 2024. 


When the ED was taking Delhi CM to the court, he made a brief interaction with the media. Below is what Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said, "My life is dedicated to the country, whether I am inside (jail) or outside."


For the unversed, ED has claimed, "By acts of corruption and conspiracy… a continuous stream of illegal funds in the form of kickbacks from the wholesalers was generated for AAP. Further, and her associates were to recover the proceeds of crime paid in advance to AAP and to further generate profits/proceeds of crime from this entire conspiracy."


Presenting Arvind Kejriwal to court, ED stated that the Delhi CM was directly involved in the formation of the excise policy. ED further said that the CM Kejriwal is the key conspirator and kingpin in demanding kickbacks from liquor businessmen. ED is seeking Delhi CM's 10-day custody remand. The hearing is still underway (while writing).
