Arvind Kejriwal arrest news: Delhi's Rouse Avenue court on Monday extended Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's judicial custody until April 23 in a money-laundering case stemming from the alleged excise policy scam. 

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader joined the hearing through virtual conference. While passing the order, the court noted that the judicial custody of co-accused K Kavitha is also extended till April 23. The continuous extensions of the AAP supremo custody may prove to be a major damage to the party's Lok Sabha 2024 election campaigning. 

In a separate hearing of Arvind Kejriwal's plea challenging the Enforcement Directorate arrest, the Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the ED in the case. The law enforcement agency has been asked to file a reply to AAP convener's plea by April 24. The matter will be heard on April 29.

"I became emotional seeing him. He is being treated like a hardcore criminal. What is his fault? Is it his fault that he built mohalla clinics?" said Mann.
