New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday, April 1, moved an application seeking permission to have a special diet, and medicines and carry several books including Ramayana, Mahabharata and How Prime Ministers Decide. Furthermore, citing diabetic issues, Kejriwal's legal team has put forward another application of providing him with ‘home-cooked’ food and not as per the jail manual.

This development comes as the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Convenor has been sent to 14-day judicial custody in link to the Excise Policy Case by the Rouse Avenue Court on Monday, April 1. The Chief Minister has been sent to jail till April 15 in the money laundering case. 


The Enforcement Directorate (ED) sought 15-day custody, citing Kejriwal's lack of 'cooperation.' Meanwhile, speaking before entering court, Kejriwal criticised the actions.

In the court, AAP ministers and Kejriwal's wife Sunita were present. 


CM Kejriwal was arrested on March 21 and remanded in ED custody till March 28. The probe agency has accused Kejriwal of involvement in the Delhi liquor scam.

The court granted an extension of his custody till April 1, following ED's plea.
