AAP Leaders Detained During Protest Against Kejriwal’s Arrest

Delhi Police detained Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, including Delhi Ministers Saurabh Bharadwaj and Atishi, during a protest against the arrest of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Bharadwaj stated that they would appeal to the Supreme Court for Kejriwal’s rights, including meeting his lawyer and family, as well as carrying out official duties. Atishi, in a social media post, decried the arrests as an assault on democracy.

Supreme Court Agrees to Hear Kejriwal’s Plea

The Supreme Court agreed to hear Kejriwal’s plea against his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy case. Kejriwal’s petition challenges the ED’s actions and seeks legal recourse. The urgent hearing was requested by senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi, emphasizing the importance of the matter ahead of elections.

Background on Kejriwal’s Arrest

Kejriwal was arrested by the ED after failing to obtain protection from coercive action in the excise policy-linked money laundering case. The case revolves around alleged corruption and money laundering related to the Delhi government’s excise policy. Kejriwal’s arrest follows similar actions against AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh, who are currently in judicial custody in the same case.

Legal Battle and Political Fallout

The legal battle over Kejriwal’s arrest intensifies, with AAP leaders challenging the ED’s actions and seeking judicial intervention. The case underscores broader tensions between the ruling party and opposition, raising questions about democratic norms and the independence of investigative agencies. Kejriwal’s arrest also reverberates politically, impacting the upcoming elections and shaping public perceptions of governance and accountability.
