Law Comes First: Delhi High Court Says Kejriwal’s Arrest is Right

Recently, a big event happened in politics and law right here in India. There was an important ruling in the Delhi High Court for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal: “No getting out of jail” is going to become the case, given the fact that there are serious allegations regarding money laundering in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy case.

Kejriwal’s Arrest Amid

The court said there was enough evidence against Kejriwal, and this proof is not just about him personally, but also about his job as the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). Kejriwal tried to fight against the arrest that was on March 21, saying that this arrest was not fair at all for political reasons, especially from the fact that big elections aka the Indian general elections are coming up. But the High Court closely looked at it and mentioned that Kejriwal had not responded to any of the nine summonses from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) within a gap of six months. So, they had to arrest him for looking further into the case.

The court pointed out details being shared that the ED claimed, such as Kejriwal involving himself in wrong activities, including asking for illegal money and hiding funds of around ₹45 crore used in the campaign of AAP for the 2022 Goa elections. It has been a great development in the political scene for Kejriwal and, more importantly, if we may say so, his party, AAP. It would put people in thought about the plans and ethics of the party before the important elections, though the court also said this doesn’t mean the end of the trial. Kejriwal still has a chance to show he is innocent.

The court closely looked at everything involved in the case. The court also checked all the money misuse claims during the Goa elections.

The judgment was based on the fact that it looked into all the evidence submitted by the Directorate of Enforcement: What witnesses had to say, money sent secretly, and bank records. It was made clear by the High Court on their part that they are fair in judgment and that they do not mix politics with the law. They only looked at the facts and followed what the law says. Now, as the AAP contemplates what its next move is going to be, and Kejriwal prepares to take this to the Supreme Court, everybody speaks and speculates as to what is going to happen. This case will be a fine example of just how thin the line between law and politics really is. That means every other person in this world of politics, regardless of how big one gets, he/she is not above the law. We all wait to see what will follow, but when all is said and done, the bottom line is the point of being honest and responsible when being in a leadership position. This is what keeps our society’s democratic spirit alive.
