Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Granted Bail In Liquor Policy Scam Case

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been granted bail in the liquor policy scam case. The Rouse Avenue court, after reserving its judgment earlier on Thursday, granted bail to the AAP leader.

A vacation bench led by Judge Nyay Bindu issued the order, allowing Kejriwal, who was detained in Tihar Jail, to be released.

According to reports, the Delhi CM will be able to exit Tihar Jail on Friday once he posts a bail bond of Rs 1 lakh.

Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 due to his alleged involvement in the liquor scam case and has been incarcerated in Tihar Jail since.

In May, the Supreme Court allowed Kejriwal temporary bail to participate in the Lok Sabha Elections campaign until June 1. He turned himself in on June 2 and was taken back to Tihar Jail.

Reports indicate that the Enforcement Directorate requested the court to impose a 48-hour limit for the bail bond of Rs 1 lakh to allow time for an appeal to a higher court. However, the Delhi court refused to stay the order.
