YEARS

The central agency had also requested the court to send Kejriwal to its custody for five days for questioning in the corruption case related to the alleged excise scam. However, the CBI got three days of custody. Kejriwal claimed before the court that he is innocent in the case.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has been sent to three-day CBI custody. Earlier today, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) formally arrested Arvind Kejriwal. The central agency had also requested the court to send Kejriwal to its custody for five days for questioning in the corruption case related to the alleged excise scam. However, the CBI has got three days of custody. Kejriwal claimed before the court that he is innocent in this case.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has strongly criticised the CBI action. Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh accused the Centre of fabricating a fake case against Kejriwal. “The whole country can see this and stands in solidarity with Arvind Kejriwal,” Singh said. Kejriwal was granted bail by a Delhi court on June 20 after his arrest by the ED on March 21. However, the ED challenged the decision in the Delhi High Court, which later stayed the bail on June 21 and reserved its order for June 25. Kejriwal’s legal team then approached the Supreme Court, which advised it to wait for the high court’s order instead of issuing an immediate decision.
