Earlier, on March 27, the high court declined to provide interim relief to Kejriwal, citing that the issue raised significant concerns that couldn't be hastily decided without obtaining the agency's perspective. The court instructed the ED to submit its response to the challenge against Kejriwal's arrest and subsequent remand into the ED's custody.

In its response, the ED stated that following the filing of the current petition, Kejriwal was further remanded to its custody through a comprehensive and detailed remand order until April 1.

Kejriwal was transferred to judicial custody by the trial court, a decision which was not contested by his counsel.

“In light of the above submission made by the petitioner before the Ld. Special Court, PMLA that he has no objection to the custody/ remand being extended further, the petitioner has waived his right to question his custody as on today and the petitioner cannot now be allowed to argue that his custody as on today is illegal," the response added.
