Arvind Kejriwal Supreme Court Hearing Live: What did Delhi HC say while rejecting plea?

The Delhi HC bench of Justice Swarna Kanta Sharma said, the ED had enough material, which led them to arrest Kejriwal, adding that his refusal to join the investigation when summoned and the delay caused were impacting those in judicial custody. 

"The accused has been arrested and his arrest and remand have to be examined as per law and not as per the timing of elections. Kejriwal's challenge to the timing of arrest before General elections in the absence of any mala fide on the part of ED is not sustainable," the court said. 

Evidence gathered by the ED indicates that Kejriwal participated in a conspiracy and actively engaged in utilizing and concealing proceeds of crime. The ED investigation also suggests his involvement both personally and in his capacity as the convenor of the AAP, the HC said.
