New Delhi, July 3: A court here on Wednesday extended till July 12 the judicial custody of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the money laundering case related to the alleged excise policy scam.
Kejriwal, who is in jail till July 12 in the CBI case related to the excise policy, appeared before the court of Special Judge Kaveri Baweja through video conference.
The court, meanwhile, reserved for June 6 its order on Kejriwal’s application to allow his wife Sunita Kejriwal to be present as an attendant during his medical checkup.
During the proceedings, Kejriwal requested the court’s permission to speak but the court said he is already being represented through his counsels.
Kejriwal said his wife was instrumental in managing his health over the years and as she had a detailed knowledge about his ailments and medical history, granting her access to his medical records every week was justifiable and essential.
“Transparency in his medical care is not only a legal requirement but also a critical component of ethical medical practice. Therefore, the applicant (Arvind Kejriwal) and his wife must be duly informed of all aspects of the treatment being administered, ensuring their capability to make informed decisions about his health,” the plea said.
Delhi HC to hear Kejriwal’s bail plea on Friday

The counsel for Kejriwal mentioned the matter for urgent listing before a bench of Acting Chief Justice Manmohan and Justice Tushar Rao Gedela which said it would be heard on Friday. (PTI)
