Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who has been sent to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till March 28, filed a plea in the Rouse Avenue Court, urging the removal of Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) AK Singh from his security. Arvind Kejriwal alleged misconduct by the cop during his appearance for the hearing in the liquor policy case, sources told India Today TV.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief claimed that he was mistreated by AK Singh while being brought to the court for a hearing earlier in the day, sources said.

Kejriwal was produced before the court around 2 pm amid tight security in and around the court premises. The 55-year-old activist-turned-politician was arrested by the probe agency on Thursday night under the anti-money laundering law from his official residence in the Civil Lines area of Delhi.

Notably, this isn't the first instance of alleged misbehaviour by the cop, as a written complaint had previously been filed regarding a similar incident involving Kejriwal's former deputy Manish Sisodia, who is also arrested in the liquor policy case. Sisodia has been in prison for more than a year now.

Meanwhile, Special Judge Kaveri Baweja granted 6-day custody of Arvind Kejriwal to the Enforcement Directorate and asked the probe agency to present him before the court by 2 pm on March 28 for further proceedings on the remand.

The probe agency has also been asked to provide an update on the progress of the investigation and outline future steps during the hearing.

The court also directed the probe agency to question the Delhi Chief Minister under CCTV surveillance, ensuring that footage of the interrogation is preserved for future reference.

Furthermore, Kejriwal has been allowed to meet his lawyers on a daily basis between 6 pm and 7 pm till he is in probe agency remand. Permission has also been granted to Kejriwal to meet his wife, Sunita Kejriwal, and Private Secretary Vibhav Kumar for half an hour every day.

In view of his health, the court has directed the Enforcement Directorate to ensure that Kejriwal gets a diet recommended by doctors. "In case it's not feasible, Arvind Kejriwal will be allowed to have home-cooked meals," the court order said.
