Delhi High Court Denies Interim Relief to Arvind Kejriwal, Sets Hearing for April 3

In a recent development, the Delhi High Court has declined to grant any interim relief to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who is currently in the custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The court issued notices regarding Kejriwal’s plea and scheduled further hearing on April 3.

A bench headed by Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma issued a notice to the ED on Kejriwal’s plea, seeking his immediate release and declaring his arrest and remand as illegal. The ED has been directed to respond to the notice by April 2.

Senior advocate AM Singhvi, representing Kejriwal, contended that no reply from the ED was necessary. However, the court emphasized the importance of hearing both sides fairly, citing the principles of natural justice. The court stated that the ED’s reply is crucial in deciding the case.

In its ruling, the court highlighted the significance of granting the respondent an opportunity to file a reply, ensuring effective representation and upholding the principle of audi alteram partem (hear the other side). Failure to provide this opportunity would constitute a denial of fair hearing and a violation of natural justice.

The decision underscores the court’s commitment to upholding procedural fairness and ensuring that both parties have an opportunity to present their arguments. As the case unfolds, all eyes will be on the proceedings scheduled for April 3, where further clarity on Kejriwal’s legal status is expected to emerge.
