Addressing a press conference here minutes after the court granted Kejriwal's custody to the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi minister Atishi said, "We humbly want to submit that we respectfully disagree with this court order."

"That is a reason why opposition leaders are being booked through the ED under the PMLA because getting bail in such a case is almost impossible," she claimed.
