Arvind Kejriwal’s Requests for Items to Bring Along as He Enters Tihar Jail

Monday, while in judicial custody at Tihar Jail, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was permitted by a Delhi court to bring the Ramayana, the Bhagavad Geeta, and the book “How Prime Ministers Decide” by journalist Neerja Chowdhury.
The order was issued by Rouse Avenue Courts Special Judge (PC Act) Kaveri Baweja, and Kejriwal was placed in judicial detention till April 15.
20 minutes after the reporters received the byte they had been waiting for, the Enforcement Directorate also received the custody they had been fighting for. Regarding the purported alcohol fraud, Kejriwal was placed under 14 days of judicial custody by Special CBI Judge Kaveri Baweja.
The chief minister’s lawyer submitted four requests, including permission to bring three books to jail, but they did not object to the jail.

The fourth AAP leader to be imprisoned at Tihar is Kejriwal. Sanjay Singh, a member of the Rajya Sabha, Satyender Jain, and former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia are already behind bars. Kavita, the leader of Bharat Rashtra Samithi, is in jail in Tihar for the same offense.
Kejriwal, who has diabetes, requested home-cooked meals while in court custody, and the judge granted his request. Kejriwal was also permitted to bring his own pillows, including a mattress.

Following SV Raju’s appearance on behalf of ED and without raising any objections, the Court issued its ruling.
Upon the court’s orders, the Tihar Jail authorities are directed to conduct regular monitoring of Arvind Kejriwal’s blood sugar levels. In the event of sudden drops, the authorities are required to provide Isabgol, Glucose, Toffees, and Bananas as necessary. Furthermore, Judge Baweja has suggested the consideration of providing Kejriwal with a notepad and pen by the jail superintendent. In cases where these items are unavailable, Kejriwal may bring his own, pending scrutiny and adherence to jail regulations.

The ED detained Kejriwal on March 21 after receiving accusations that he was the “primary conspirator” in the case of money laundering.
Judge Baweja first remanded the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to ED detention until March 28. On March 22, Kejriwal was brought before the court by the ED.
Kejriwal’s ED custody was extended on March 28. On April 1st (Monday), the ED remand ended.
In addition to asking the court to place Kejriwal under judicial custody, the ED stated that it reserved the right to request additional detention for him.
Kejriwal was detained for 15 days by the court after Judge Baweja granted the ED’s application.

The applications of Kejriwal

The first request Kejriwal’s lawyers made to the court was to allow him to have his authorised medications with him while he was incarcerated. Permission to bring copies of the Ramayana, the Bhagavad Gita, and How Prime Ministers Decide was the second request. Permission for a particular diet was the fourth request, and the third was to carry a religious necklace with him at all times. 

Sunita, Kejriwal’s wife, was in the courtroom, and the lawyers asked that she be permitted to see her husband.
