The Supreme Court has deferred the hearing of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's petition challenging the Delhi High Court's stay on his bail till June 26. The decision comes as the Supreme Court awaits the High Court's final ruling on the Enforcement Directorate's plea challenging Kejriwal's bail in the Delhi excise policy case.

Observations on high court proceedings

The Supreme Court noted the "unusual" manner in which the High Court handled the case, highlighting that the High Court reserved its order instead of delivering it on the same day. The Supreme Court emphasised that it would not make the same alleged "mistake" by staying the High Court's decision without the final order being issued.

Supreme Court's stance

"We will wait for the Delhi High Court to pronounce its final order on the ED's plea challenging the bail granted to Arvind Kejriwal," the Supreme Court stated. This decision reflects the Court's approach to ensuring due process is followed, despite expressing concerns over the High Court's handling of the proceedings.

The next hearing is set for June 26, with the Supreme Court's decision contingent on the High Court's ruling in the interim.
