Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, has petitioned the Supreme Court to have his seven-day interim bail extended concerning the money laundering case involving liquor policy fraud. On May 10, he was set free after the court granted his request for temporary release so that he could participate in the Lok Sabha elections.

Kejriwal requested the extension, according to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), because he needs to go through medical testing.

Kejriwal must surrender to prison officials on June 2, the day after his interim bail expires.

The AAP supremo was detained by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case and later imprisoned in Tihar Jail.

While approving his interim bail application on May 10, the Supreme Court instructed the Chief Minister to surrender on June 2 and stated, Let us not draw any parallels. He was arrested in March, and the arrest might have occurred before or after. After 21 days, there can be no difference. Arvind Kejriwal will give up on June 2.

Kejriwal is not permitted to enter the Delhi Secretariat or the office of the Chief Minister under the terms of the interim bail rules.

Additionally, he has been advised to refrain from discussing the case or interacting with any of the witnesses.

Kejriwal has not stopped campaigning for his party since receiving his temporary bail.

He called on the people of Punjab to come out and take the lead in the struggle to preserve this nation’s freedom, democracy, and Constitution while speaking to a town hall event attended by traders and entrepreneurs in Ferozepur. Referring to his detention, he stated, On March 16, the general elections have been declared, and they detained me on March 21. They detained me, my party leaders Sanjay Singh, Manish Sisodia, and Satyendar Jain, and then Modi said in Delhi, Let us fight the election.
