Arvind Kejriwal to move SC after Delhi HC dismisses plea challenging his arrest

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will be moving to the Supreme Court after Delhi High Court has dismissed his plea challenging the arrest by Enforcement Directorate in the excise policy money laundering case.

Aam Aadmi Pary has said that they do not agree with the decision of Delhi High Court and they will move to the Supreme Court tomorrow itself.

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday dismissed his petition, telling the arrest claiming that There was no contravention of legal provisions. Also, the court has said that his judicial custody in Tihar jail is also not illegal.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma said that the Enforcement Directorate had enough materials which led to his arrest. And the trial court remanded him in the custody of the agency by a well-reasoned order. Court also clarified that the law has been applied equally to all and with constitutional morality, not political morality, apparently referring to the claims Kejriwal and his party made over the arrest and said that it was done to hamper the Lok Sabha poll campaign.
