Delhi court denies Arvind Kejriwal’s request for additional lawyer meetings

Delhi Court Rejects Arvind Kejriwal’s Plea for Additional Legal Meetings in Liquor Policy Case

A Delhi Court on Wednesday rejected Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s request for five weekly meetings with his lawyers instead of the permitted two, while he remains in judicial custody in the liquor policy case.

Special judge Kaveri Baweja noted that Kejriwal hadn’t utilized the allowed two legal interviews per week solely for discussing pending litigations, but rather for other purposes. The judge cited an instance where Kejriwal gave directives to his Water Minister via one of his lawyers during a legal meeting, indicating a diversion from discussing legal matters.

The court stated that Kejriwal’s application lacked evidence of using the allotted time for legal discussions exclusively, leading to its dismissal.

Kejriwal has been in judicial custody since his arrest on March 21, with various legal battles ensuing. The Delhi High Court recently dismissed his plea against the arrest in the money laundering case, prompting him to move the Supreme Court.

The charges against Kejriwal involve allegations of conspiracy related to the excise policy, aiming to benefit specific private companies with excessive profit margins, allegedly coordinated by Vijay Nair and others, purportedly acting on behalf of Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia.

Despite legal challenges and assertions of illegal summons, Kejriwal’s legal situation remains precarious, with ongoing hearings and investigations into the alleged conspiracy.
