Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday moved the Delhi High Court against his arrest by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the liquor policy scam case.

The development comes two days after the Chief Minister (on Saturday) was sent to judicial custody until July 12 by a Delhi court.

The lower court, while granting him custody, said his name surfaced as one of the "main conspirators" and as the investigation is still in progress.

Kejriwal was produced in court by the CBI after the end of his three-day custodial interrogation, following which the central agency sought 14-day judicial custody while claiming that the AAP chief did not cooperate with the investigation and deliberately gave evasive replies.

The agency, in its remand plea, also expressed apprehension that he may influence witnesses and evidence already exposed before him during the custodial interrogation and also the potential witnesses who are yet to be examined.
