    In the Excise Policy money laundering case, the Delhi High Court will rule today on the appeal filed by the Enforcement Department (ED) requesting a stay of the bail granted to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. On Monday, the ED filed written submissions with the high court, contesting any relief for Kejriwal and characterising the trial court's bail decision as unlawful and illogical. 

    The ED claims that the trial court's vacation judge improperly considered the prosecution's evidence and reached incorrect conclusions in almost every line of the ruling, both legally and factually. The agency also claimed that the vacation judge disregarded further evidence gathered against Kejriwal after 2023, including as testimony from 13 Angariyas, AAP employees in Goa, and AAP office bearers. In the Delhi High Court, the ED said that depriving them of an adequate chance would contravene one of the provisions delineated in Section 45.

    In the money laundering case, Kejriwal was granted bail by the trial judge on June 20. The next day, the Enforcement Department filed an urgent plea with the High Court to contest the bail decision. Kejriwal's release was delayed till the high court's decision was made after it gave both sides a thorough hearing and reserved its judgement on the ED's request to halt the bail ruling.

    After that, on Monday, the case was taken before the Supreme Court, which postponed the decision till June 26. Kejriwal had filed a plea in the Delhi excise policy case, appealing the Delhi High Court's temporary suspension of his release. Justices Manoj Misra and SVN Bhatti, who make up the Supreme Court's vacation bench, observed that the high court's choice to grant an interim stay on Kejriwal's release without giving a final ruling was "unusual."
