Arvind Kejriwal News: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has filed a bail petition in Rouse Avenue Court. Rouse Avenue Court will hear this petition at 2 pm. This petition has been filed for regular bail, while Kejriwal is currently out on interim bail and he has to surrender on June 2. Arvind Kejriwal was sent to jail in the alleged corruption case related to Delhi liquor policy. He was arrested by ED on March 21. Kejriwal was questioned in ED custody for several days and on April 1, he was sent to Tihar Jail in judicial custody.

Kejriwal, who was in jail for about 49 days, was granted interim bail by the Supreme Court on May 10. This bail was given for campaigning in the Lok Sabha elections. The court granted bail to Kejriwal till June 1 with some conditions and ordered him to surrender on June 2.

Kejriwal had once approached the Supreme Court even before the surrender date came near. Kejriwal had appealed to the court to extend his interim bail by a week. Kejriwal had cited his poor health, but the Supreme Court did not accept his appeal and refused to extend the interim bail.

After getting a setback from the Supreme Court, Kejriwal has now approached the Rouse Avenue Court. Kejriwal has filed a petition for regular bail here, which is to be heard today at 2 pm.
