Delhi High Court Halts Kejriwal’s Bail Order in Money Laundering Case

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party National President Arvind Kejriwal has faced a significant setback from the Delhi High Court. On June 20, a bench led by Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain put a stay on the bail order granted to Kejriwal by the trial court in a money laundering case.

The Delhi High Court accepted the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) petition, thereby staying the contentious order. The court stated that the vacation judge did not properly appreciate the material on record and the statements made by the ED. Consequently, the application was accepted, and the implementation of the contested order was stayed.

It is notable that after the ED challenged the trial court’s decision, the bench reserved its order on June 21, putting it on hold until the final decision. Meanwhile, the court has already scheduled the main case for July, where the ED challenged the trial court’s order granting regular bail to Kejriwal. In its ruling, the High Court stated that the trial court’s order did not adequately discuss the mandatory conditions under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
