Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court granted Kejriwal permission to withdraw his petition challenging the Delhi High Court's interim stay on his bail in the money laundering case linked to the alleged liquor policy scam.

Senior advocate AM Singhvi, representing Kejriwal, informed a vacation Bench of Justices Manoj Misra and SV Bhatti of their intention to file a fresh petition challenging the High Court's final order.

On June 20, Special Judge Niyay Bindu, acting as the vacation judge, granted bail to Kejriwal, noting that the ED had failed to provide direct evidence linking him to the proceeds of crime in the money laundering case.
