In a major blow to the Delhi chief minister, the Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected Arvind Kejriwal’s plea for 7-day extension of his interim bail.

Refusing Kejriwal’s plea, the apex court’s registrar said the Delhi CM was given permission to move trial court for regular bail, and hence this petition is “not maintainable”.
This suggests that Kejriwal will have to surrender and go back to Delhi’s Tihar Jail on June 2.

On May 10, Kejriwal had got interim bail from the Supreme Court for a period of 21 days to campaign for the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. He was asked to surrender on June 2.

On Monday (May 27), Kejriwal had sought 7-day extension of his interim bail on health grounds. His Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said the Delhi CM was due to undergo PET-CT scan and other tests, as a result of which he had requested for extension of interim bail.

In his fresh plea, Kejriwal said he will surrender before jail authorities on June 9 instead of June 2, the scheduled date for his return to prison. On May 17, the bench reserved verdict on his challenge to the validity of his arrest by Enforcement Directorate in a PMLA case linked to liquor scam.
