Punjab Newsline, New Delhi , May 27-
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has petitioned the Supreme Court for a seven-day extension on his interim bail in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. Citing serious health concerns, Mr Kejriwal highlighted the need for medical tests, including a PET-CT scan, following a weight loss of 7 kg and elevated ketone levels.
Mr Kejriwal was initially granted interim bail until June 1 by the Supreme Court to facilitate his participation in the Lok Sabha election campaign. As per the ruling, he is required to surrender and return to Tihar Jail on June 2.
The Chief Minister's legal counsel argued that these tests are crucial for his well-being and requested the court to consider the extension to complete the necessary medical investigations.
The interim bail granted to Mr Kejriwal has sparked controversy, with BJP leaders alleging that he received "special treatment" from the Supreme Court. However, the justices involved in granting the bail have firmly stated that no exceptions were made in Mr Kejriwal's favour.
