Meanwhile, the Delhi court passed the order against Kejriwal on Monday after ED produced him before it as the Delhi CM’s custodial remand ended. Last week on Thursday, the court had extended his custodial remand till April 1 in connection with the money-laundering case linked to the alleged liquor excise policy scam.

After the Delhi court’s latest order, Kejriwal has been brought to the Tihar Jail, where he will be lodged in Jail number 2, according to news agency ANI.

Kejriwal’s arrest has led to protests by AAP workers and leaders. As AAP is a member of the INDIA bloc, the Opposition parties have joined the chorus alleging that the Centre is misuing investigative agencies like ED, CBI etc. to muzzle the voice of leaders.
