Share on:

On May 29, 2024 (Wednesday), the Supreme Court (SC) Registry refused to list Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea seeking an extension of interim bail by 7 days granted to him in the money laundering case in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam case. Earlier on May 10, 2024, the court granted him interim bail to campaign for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections and ordered him to surrender on June 02, 2024. Further, the CM moved to the SC seeking a 7-day extension of his interim bail on medical grounds. On May 28, 2024, the top court’s vacation bench constituting Justice JK Maheshwari and Justice KV Viswanathan declined to pass any direction and ordered to place the matter before the CJI for appropriate orders. In a recent development, the SC Registry refused to list Arvind Kejriwal’s plea stating that the CM was granted liberty to move to the Trial Court for regular bail; hence, the petition is not maintainable.
