Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been remanded to six days' custody of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) until March 28 by a Delhi court. This decision comes as part of the federal agency's investigation into alleged irregularities surrounding the now-defunct Delhi excise policy 2021-22.

The ED's arrest of Kejriwal came after the Delhi High Court declined to grant him interim protection in the excise policy case, denying relief from coercive actions. The ED conducted raids at Kejriwal's residence, and reports suggest section 144 has been imposed around the ED Headquarters in the national capital.

AAP leader and Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi accused the police of preventing party members from meeting Kejriwal's family, who is currently in ED custody over the excise policy scam.

AAP leaders have voiced support for Kejriwal, affirming their belief that he will continue to serve as Delhi's CM even from jail. Meanwhile, supporters present in court expressed solidarity with Kejriwal, echoing the sentiment that the entirety of Delhi stands with him.
