ED alleges CM Kejriwal deliberately eating mangoes, sweets in jail to raise his blood sugar level to get bail

The Enforcement Directorate in a bizarre allegation, told a Delhi court that jailed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was deliberately eating mangoes and sweets and taking tea with sugar so as to raise his blood sugar level and use that as a ground to secure bail on medical grounds, Bar and Bench reported.

“Today, he (Kejriwal) is in court custody. He is in custody because of our case. The cause of concern is he was allowed prescribed home cooked food because he claimed he has high diabetes. But he is having mangoes, sweets and sugar with with tea. This is a basis to create a ground for bail,” ED counsel Zoheb Hossain submitted.

Hossain made this submission before Special Judge Kaveri Baweja in response to a plea by Kejriwal for regular check-ups of his sugar level and consultation with his regular doctor through video conference.

Kejriwal’s lawyer Vivek Jain objected to the submissions by ED and said that the investigating agency was making these allegations only for the media.

Kejriwal’s lawyers had informed the Rouse Avenue Court that his sugar levels had dropped to 46 and was continuously fluctuating.

The Court today sought a report from Tihar Jail about the diet chart of Kejriwal, Bar and Bench reported.

Kejriwal is currently lodged in Tihar jail in connection with the money laundering probe related to the Delhi excise policy case.
