SC bars Kejriwal from entering CM office, Secretariat on interim bail

“He will not make any comment with regard to his role in the present case; and will not interact with any of the witnesses and/or have access to any official files connected with the case,” the top court said.

The apex court, while granting Kejriwal the relief, said there was no doubt about the fact that serious accusations have been made against him, but he has not been convicted yet. “He does not have any criminal antecedents. He is not a threat to the society,” the bench said.

In a major relief to Kejriwal, the top court granted him interim bail until 1 June to campaign in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections, and said Kejriwal will have to surrender and go back to jail on 2 June.

The matter relates to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and execution of the Delhi government’s now scrapped excise policy for 2021-22.
