The matter will next be heard on April 29, despite Kejriwal’s lawyer Abhishek Singhvi urging the court to post the matter for this Friday, on April 19 – on the day of the first phase of the Lok  Sabha polls. 

Singhvi told the bench that he wanted to show some facts that will “shock the conscience of the court”. He said it was an “unusual matter,” not because he is a chief minister but because he was allegedly not named in the chargesheets and enforcement case information report. He further claimed that the purpose of the arrest was to stop Kejriwal from campaigning.
