Delhi High Court to hear Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's plea tomorrow (March 27) against his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in an excise policy case.

Earlier in the day, AAP planned to gherao Prime Minister's residence as an act of protest against the Delhi CM's arrest. 

Addressing a press conference in the national capital, the party's Delhi convenor Gopal Rai alleged that MLAs and councillors of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) were stopped from meeting the family members of the Delhi chief minister, who was arrested by the ED in an excise policy-linked money-laundering case on Thursday (March 21).

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the ED in connection with the money laundering case linked to now scrapped excise policy of his government on Thursday last week. He is in custody of the agency till March 28 (Thursday).

What is the case? 

The case pertains to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and execution of the Delhi government's excise policy for 2021-22, which was subsequently annulled. AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh are currently in judicial custody in connection with the case. 

It should be mentioned here that Kejriwal's name has been mentioned multiple times in the chargesheets filed by the ED. The agency alleges that the accused were in communication with Kejriwal during the formulation of the excise policy, resulting in undue benefits for them in exchange for kickbacks paid to the party.
