“Truth can be troubled, but not defeated. Rejecting all objections of BJP’s ED, the Hon’ble Court has granted bail to Delhi Chief Minister,” said AAP.

Special Judge Niyay Bindu granted bail to Kejriwal after hearing Enforcement Directorate (ED), which sought to link the CM to the alleged proceeds of crime and co-accused.

However, due to shortage of time today, the court did not pass any order on Kejriwal’s application to allow his wife to join proceedings through virtual mode when he examined by the medical board, as per reports by Live Law.

The central investigation agency’s special counsel Zohen Hossain had prayed for stay of the order until ED legal remedies, however, it was rejected by court.
