SC Questions Kejriwal’s Failure to Seek Bail from Trial Court in Arrest Case

The Supreme Court heard Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea challenging his arrest in a money laundering case, questioning why he hadn’t sought bail from the trial court. Kejriwal’s counsel argued that the arrest was unlawful, citing various reasons. The Enforcement Directorate arrested Kejriwal on March 21st, following the Delhi High Court’s refusal to shield him from coercive action. Kejriwal, currently in judicial custody at Tihar jail, had his arrest upheld by the high court on April 9th, which deemed it legal, noting his repeated non-compliance with summonses. Kejriwal’s counsel contended that lack of interim bail or a statement couldn’t justify the arrest, highlighting his cooperation with the CBI and ED.
