Delhi court extends Arvind Kejriwal’s judicial custody until July 3

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s judicial custody has been extended till July 3 by a Delhi court in connection with the liquor excise policy case. The court’s decision came on Wednesday during a hearing related to the alleged irregularities in the Delhi excise policy, which was annulled in 2022.

The Enforcement Directorate had requested the extension of Kejriwal’s judicial custody, citing the need for further investigation into the case, where ₹45 crore out of ₹100 linked to the matter have been traced.


Kejriwal, represented by advocate Vivek Jain, opposed the custody extension, arguing that the application lacked merit. The next court hearing in the case is scheduled for July 3, coinciding with the expiration of Kejriwal’s current judicial custody.
