Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta appeared for Kejriwal and submitted that the request for additional meetings with lawyers cannot be prejudicial in any manner.

The Delhi High Court on Monday issued notice on a plea by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is in judicial custody in the alleged liquor policy scam, seeking permission to hold two additional meetings with his lawyers through virtual conferencing. Justice Neena Bansal Krishna sought responses from the Tihar jail authorities as well as the Enforcement Directorate (ED) within five days and listed the matter for hearing on July 15.

Senior advocate Ramesh Gupta appeared for Kejriwal and said that the request for additional meetings with lawyers cannot be prejudicial in any way. During the intervention of ED special counsel Zoheb Hussain, Gupta said that the matter is between Kejriwal and the jail and the central investigating agency cannot say anything. Gupta said that Kejriwal currently has 35 cases pending and hence he wants two more additional meetings with his lawyers through VC.

Kejriwal has challenged the trial court’s order passed on July 01 rejecting his application for two additional meetings with his lawyers in connection with the money laundering case. Kejriwal is in judicial custody in corruption and money laundering cases related to the alleged scam. The chief minister was sent to CBI custody for three days on June 26, observing that the arrest cannot be termed illegal.
