New Delhi : CM Arvind Kejriwal has received a big setback from the Delhi High Court. The High Court has stayed the trial court's order granting him bail in the Delhi Excise Policy case. The High Court said in its decision that the documents and arguments were not evaluated properly, so the lower court's order is stayed. The High Court said that the roster bench will consider other arguments. Along with this, the Delhi High Court has stayed the Rouse Avenue Court's order on Arvind Kejriwal's bail.

Arvind Kejriwal was granted bail by the Rouse Avenue Court on June 20. This order was challenged by the ED in the High Court. As soon as the matter reached the High Court, the court put an interim stay on Kejriwal's bail. Not only this, the High Court reserved its decision on the ED's petition. Now the court pronounced the order on this at 2.30 pm on Tuesday. The High Court said that the trial court should not have given any such conclusion which is contrary to the conclusion of the High Court.

The High Court said that the trial court did not even consider the plea of ​​Section 70 PMLA. A strong argument in the order was that the dual status of Section 45 PMLA was not discussed by the vacation judge. On this the Court believes that Section 45 PMLA has not been properly discussed by the trial court. Most importantly, the ASG cited paragraph 27 of the trial court order where the judge has spoken of malice on the part of the ED. But this Court believes that the coordinate bench of the Court said that there was no malice on the part of the ED.
