New Delhi: The Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court on Wednesday dismissed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea for seven-day interim bail on medical grounds.

He was produced in court virtually from Tihar jail, where he is lodged in a money-laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy.

The Delhi CM’s Counsel Advocate Vivek Jain said that there have been certain variations in Kejriwal’s weight but Special judge Kaveri Baweja said that an appropriate application should be filed on behalf of the CM, clarifying the relief he is seeking, LiveLaw reported.

He also directed the concerned authorities to conduct required medical tests of the Aam Aadmi Party chief while extending his judicial custody till June 19.

The regular bail plea of the Delhi CM in the Delhi excise policy case has been scheduled for June 7.

Kejriwal had returned to his pre-trial detention on June 2 after the end of the three-week bail to campaign in the Lok Sabha elections 2024.
