Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court dealt a significant blow to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal as it granted the CBI’s request for his 14-day judicial custody. Kejriwal was arrested during proceedings related to an alleged liquor scam case, where the CBI pressed for custody extension, a plea that was upheld by the court.

Scheduled for his next appearance via video conferencing on July 12, Kejriwal’s custody period was finalized during a session where his defense counsel sought access to case-related materials, an appeal overruled by the court.

The court emphasized that crucial investigative details couldn’t be disclosed to the accused, rejecting requests for the case diary and instructing the CBI to specify pertinent sections from the investigating officer’s records.

Arvind Kejriwal’s recent legal challenges also include his March 21 arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case, preceding his bail approval by a lower court, though subsequently challenged by the Delhi High Court.
