Arvind Kejriwal moves Supreme Court, seeks 7-day extension of bail for medical tests [27.5.2024]

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has approached the Supreme Court (SC) seeking a seven-day extension on his interim bail concerning the Delhi liquor policy case. Kejriwal, citing serious health concerns, emphasised the necessity of medical examinations, including a PET-CT scan, following a weight loss of seven kilograms and heightened ketone levels.

Kejriwal was initially granted interim bail until June 1 by the Supreme Court to facilitate his participation in the 2024 Lok Sabha election campaign.

A medical team from Max Hospital has already conducted preliminary assessments. The Chief Minister’s legal counsel argued that these tests are crucial for his well-being, urging the court to grant the extension to complete the necessary medical investigations.
