Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Sent to Tihar Jail Till April 15: Third Stint in High-Security Prison


Arvind Kejriwal in Tihar: Aam Aadmi Party Chief Arvind Kejriwal was arrested in a corruption case linked to the Delhi liquor policy on March 21

In the latest development, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal finds himself confined to Tihar jail until April 15 in connection with the liquor policy case, marking his third incarceration in this high-security facility.

This isn’t Mr. Kejriwal’s first encounter with Tihar’s confines. Previously, he faced imprisonment twice, first during the 2012 anti-corruption movement spearheaded by Anna Hazare, and then in 2014 in a defamation case filed by Nitin Gadkari.

However, this time is distinct as Mr. Kejriwal occupies the role of Chief Minister, prompting heightened security measures around his detention. Presently, he resides in Jail No. 2, alongside his former deputy, Manish Sisodia in Jail No. 1, former Health Minister Satyendar Jain in Jail No. 7, and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh in Jail No. 5.

Reports indicate that Mr. Kejriwal’s day commenced early, with breakfast served around 6:40 am – consisting of tea and a few slices of bread. Given his diabetic condition, medical personnel remain on standby 24/7, ensuring regular health check-ups during his incarceration. Additionally, he has been permitted to carry toffees to manage potential fluctuations in his sugar levels.

Moreover, Mr. Kejriwal opted for his own bed and linen, citing concerns over his weakened immune system and susceptibility to severe allergic reactions – a departure from the standard accommodations provided by the jail.

As per court directives, Mr. Kejriwal has access to reading material, including copies of the Ramayan, Shrimad Bhagvad Gita, and the book “How Prime Ministers Decide” authored by journalist Neerja Chowdhury.
