Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest in Delhi Excise Liquor Policy

Supreme Court: In a criminal special leave petition by Chief Minister of Delhi and AAP’s leader Arvind Kejriwal challenging his arrest by the Directorate of Enforcement (‘ED’) and subsequent remand in the Delhi liquor excise policy case, Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta sought response from the ED and issued notice. The Bench listed the matter for a further hearing on 29-04-2024.

Kejriwal approached the Court after the Delhi High Court dismisses Kejriwal’s petition under Articles 226 and 227 read with Section 482 of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC) against his arrest by the ED on the ground that the arrest was in violation of Section 19 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (‘PMLA’).
