Kejriwal has asked for seven days to get the investigation done, AAP further stated. Kejriwal's bail ends on June 1 on the last day of polling. 

Last month, the Supreme Court granted interim bail to Kejriwal till June 1 to campaign in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. The apex court, granting Kejriwal the relief said there was no doubt about the fact that serious accusations have been made against him but he has not been convicted yet. "He does not have any criminal antecedents. He is not a threat to the society," the bench said. However, the apex court has imposed a slew of restrictions on him as part of the bail conditions.
