Supreme Court Criticizes Unusual Stay on Arvind Kejriwal’s Bail by Delhi HC

126

The Supreme Court of India has reserved its decision on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s appeal against the Delhi High Court’s stay on his bail in a case related to the scrapped excise policy. The apex court described the High Court’s decision as unconventional, noting that rulings on stay applications are typically immediate. The vacation bench, comprising Justices Manoj Misra and SVN Bhatti, indicated it would review the High Court’s judgment and set a hearing date for June 26 to further address Kejriwal’s bail plea.

Senior Advocate Abhishek Singhvi, representing Kejriwal, argued against the interim stay, emphasizing Kejriwal’s compliance and requesting the suspension of the High Court’s order before its formal issuance. Singhvi underscored the urgency of the matter, citing precedents where similar orders were swiftly implemented based on mere mentions by the enforcement authorities.

The Supreme Court’s reservation on the High Court’s decision signals a pivotal development in the legal battle surrounding Kejriwal’s bail status, underscoring ongoing deliberations and legal complexities at play.
