Arvind Kejriwal moves Supreme Court against interim stay on bail

Kejriwal’s lawyers told Bar & Bench that they will seek urgent hearing of the matter on Monday.

Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain of High Court had ordered an interim stay on Friday on the trial court order granting bail to Kejriwal.

The trial court had on Thursday granted bail to Kejriwal and ordered his release subject to bail bond of ₹1 lakh.

Special Judge Niyay Bindu of the Rouse Avenue Court said that ED has failed to give any direct evidence linking Kejriwal to the proceeds of the crime and has also failed to show that another accused, Vijay Nair, was acting on Kejriwal’s behalf.

The special judge had also said that the ED was acting with bias against Kejriwal.

The ED had immediately moved the Delhi High Court and secured an urgent hearing in the matter. It sought a stay on the bail order.

The matter was heard by the High Court which reserved his order on the prayer for stay.

However, in the meantime, the High Court said that there shall be an interim stay on the bail order until the final order on prayer for stay is pronounced.

“I am reserving the order for two to three days. Till pronouncement of the order, the operation of the trial court order is stayed,” the High Court said.

This has led to the appeal before the top court.
