New Delhi Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s judicial custody has been extended till July 3.

The court was hearing Kejriwal’s petition seeking regular bail in the Delhi liquor policy case.

The Enforcement Directorate told the Rouse Avenue Court that it had evidence of Kejriwal demanding Rs 100 crore as kickbacks in the now withdrawn liquor policy case. Kejriwal was produced before the court through video conference. His judicial custody was to expire on Wednesday.

 

Apart from Arvind Kejriwal, the court also extended the judicial custody of Vinod Chauhan, arrested in May, till July 3. Both were produced before the court through video conferencing from Tihar Jail at the end of their judicial custody.

The counsel for ED submitted that Vinod Chauhan received Rs. 25 crores from PA of K Kavitha through Abhishek Boinpally for the Goa election, reported ANI. He also said that a prosecution complaint will be filed against Vinod Chauhan by the end of this month.

During the court hearing, Additional Solicitor General SV Raju said that everything linked to the case has ultimately boiled down to Kejriwal’s role. He further clarified that the allegations that Kejriwal demanded Rs 100 crore bribe were brought by the CBI and not the ED.
