Arvind Kejriwal’s Legal Battle: Supreme Court May Grant Interim Bail on May 7


New Delhi 04 May 2024: In a significant development, the Supreme Court hinted at the potential grant of interim bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, raising hopes for his supporters amidst ongoing legal battles. The Supreme court, while refraining from a definitive decision, expressed its inclination towards considering interim relief for Kejriwal during a hearing on Friday, setting the stage for a pivotal revisit on May 7.

Arvind Kejriwal, who has been embroiled in legal turmoil following his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), found a glimmer of hope as the court suggested the possibility of interim bail, particularly in light of the impending elections. The bench, comprising Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Dutta, directed the ED to deliberate on the feasibility of granting interim bail and the potential conditions attached to it.

Amidst the courtroom proceedings, the bench underscored the significance of the electoral context, indicating a willingness to reconsider Kejriwal’s plea for interim relief. “This case may take time. But if the case takes time, we may consider the question of interim bail because of the elections,” remarked the bench, signaling a pragmatic approach towards the matter.

The court’s directive to the ED to prepare for the discussion on interim bail underscores the gravity of the situation, with the legal battle intersecting with the electoral dynamics. Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, representing the ED, was tasked with gathering relevant instructions and outlining potential conditions for Kejriwal’s interim release.
