New Delhi: Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday moved Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi seeking regular bail in the money laundering case related to the alleged liquor policy scam. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja is likely to hear the matter at 2pm today.  

Kejriwal is currently on interim bail, granted by the Supreme Court, till June 1. The apex court had on May 10 granted 21-day interim bail to the CM to enable him to campaign for the Lok Sabha polls. The CM was asked to surrender to Tihar Jail authorities on June 2.

The Chief Minister was arrested by the ED on March 21 in connection with the case. On Wednesday, the top court’s registry had dismissed Kejriwal's plea for a 7-day extension of his interim bail to undergo some medical tests. The registry had refused to accept the application saying since Kejriwal was given liberty to move trial court for regular bail, the plea seeking extension was not maintainable.

The SC's vacation bench had on Tuesday declined to urgently list Kejriwal’s petition seeking seven more days of interim bail and asked his counsel to place the matter before the CJI DY Chandrachud. Senior advocate Abhishek Manu Singhvi representing the Delhi CM mentioned the plea for urgent hearing before the apex court's vacation bench headed by Justices JK Maheshwari and KV Viswanathan.
