Arvind Kejriwal Released on Interim Bail Amidst Lok Sabha Campaign

Arvind Kejriwal Released

New Delhi: In a significant development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was released from Tihar Jail on Friday evening after the Supreme Court granted him interim bail until June 1. The bail comes in light of a money laundering case linked to the Delhi Excise Policy, which the Enforcement Directorate is investigating.

Prior to Kejriwal’s release, a throng of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders and supporters had already assembled outside the jail premises. Upon his exit, Kejriwal was greeted with enthusiasm and support, with his wife Sunita Kejriwal, and daughter accompanying him.

He extended his thanks to the party supporters and the Supreme Court justices for their roles in his release.

Kejriwal also shared his immediate plans now that he is out of jail. He announced, “Tomorrow at 11 am, we will visit the Connaught Place Hanuman temple for darshan, followed by a press conference at the party office at 1 pm.”

Supreme Court’s Interim Bail Decision

The Supreme Court’s decision to grant interim bail was influenced by the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, allowing Kejriwal to participate in the campaign. The bench, comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Dutta, stipulated that Kejriwal must surrender by June 2 and return to custody.
