NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Monday extended the judicial custody of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal until April 23 in connection with excise policy case.
Special Judge Kaveri Baweja, overseeing cases involving the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and Enforcement Directorate (ED), prolonged Kejriwal’s custody after his appearance via video-conferencing as the earlier custody period had expired.
The ED requested a 14-day extension of Kejriwal’s custody, citing the critical stage of the investigation.
Taking into account that the judicial custody of some co-accused individuals, including BRS leader K Kavitha, would also end on April 23, the judge extended Kejriwal’s judicial custody until that date.
On April 1, the court had initially remanded Kejriwal to judicial custody until April 15 in the case.
The ED has alleged that the AAP leader was involved in the entire conspiracy regarding the Delhi liquor scam, including drafting and implementing the policy, benefiting from it, receiving kickbacks, and using part of the proceeds of crime in the Goa Assembly elections campaign.
