In the Delhi Liquor Policy case, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s troubles seem to be escalating. On Wednesday, the Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi sent Kejriwal to three days of CBI custody.

The CBI arrested him on Wednesday morning on charges of corruption and subsequently presented him in the trial court, seeking five days of custody. However, the court granted three days of CBI custody. The CBI is required to present Arvind Kejriwal in court again before 7 PM on June 29.

During the remand period, the court has ordered that Arvind Kejriwal be allowed a 30-minute daily meeting with his wife Sunita Kejriwal and 30 minutes with his lawyer. The court also directed that Kejriwal be provided with his medications and home-cooked food.

It is noteworthy that on the night of June 25, the CBI questioned Kejriwal in Tihar Jail regarding corruption in the liquor policy. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had arrested him on March 21 on money laundering charges related to the liquor policy case. He has been in Tihar Jail for the past 87 days. The Supreme Court had granted him bail for 21 days from May 10 to June 2. Following the completion of the Lok Sabha elections, he had to surrender to Tihar Jail on June 2.
