AAP Protest Today Highlights: Delhi Police has heightened security measures at Prime Minister Narendra Modi's residence following AAP's call for a "gherao" protest against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's arrest, confirmed an official on Tuesday. Additionally, security has been increased in various other areas across the national capital.

Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on March 21 about a money-laundering investigation associated with the defunct excise policy. He remains in ED custody until Thursday.

The central agency alleges that the AAP national convenor sought kickbacks from liquor traders in return for favourable treatment. The ED also accused Kejriwal of being the main instigator and key participant in the policy's implementation, in collusion with other AAP leaders, ministers, and individuals.

Earlier on Friday, the Rouse Avenue Court granted Kejriwal six days of custody to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the money laundering case pertaining to the purported liquor policy scandal. This custody extends until March 28, subsequent to his arrest on March 21.
