Arvind Kejriwal moves Delhi High Court, seeks bail in liquor policy case


Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday moved the Delhi High Court seeking bail in the liquor policy case.

Kejriwal moved the High Court directly for bail. Lawyers say that there is no bar in going directly to the High Court for bail under Section 439 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (CrPC).

In his petition, accessed exclusively by India Today, Arvind Kejriwal alleged the CBI was continuously haranguing and harassing him in the garb of the ongoing investigations in the liquor policy case, and called it a matter of grave dismay and concern.

The Chief Minister also alleged he rendered all due cooperation and assistance to the CBI when he was called for interrogations in April 2023.

His arrest is wholly illegal, unconstitutional and unsustainable, the Chief Minister claimed, adding, that the remand orders are patently routine, leading to vitiation of the entire process of arrest and proceedings.

“The investigations have already been completed and the materials which form the basis of the arrest have already been gathered. A premier investigating agency like the CBI cannot play truant with the process of law. It has to act with dispassion and objectivity while dispelling any notion of bias or lop-sided approach,” the petition by Arvind Kejriwal read.
