New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has received a big shock from the Delhi High Court. Now the High Court has banned Kejriwal’s bail. The Delhi High Court said that the bail will be suspended till the end of the hearing. Yesterday, the Rose Avenue Court granted regular bail to Kejriwal in the money laundering case related to the Delhi liquor scam. But today, ED has reached the High Court against Kejriwal’s bail.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has challenged Kejriwal’s bail in the Delhi High Court. The ED demanded the High Court to conduct an immediate hearing. The High Court accepted the ED petition. In its petition, the ED said, granting bail to Kejriwal at a crucial moment in the investigation will affect the investigation as Kejriwal holds an important position.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the ED on March 21 in a money laundering case related to liquor scam. Kejriwal was supposed to be released from Tihar Jail today but earlier the ED reached the High Court and opposed the bail. Meanwhile, Judge Sudhir Jain said, “The order of the lower court will not be effective till the time the case is heard in the High Court.”
“The lower court was not given sufficient time to present their side in the case,” said the counsel appearing for the ED.
