A former anti-corruption crusader, Mr Kejriwal was arrested in connection with a now-scrapped alcohol sales policy in March. 

The Supreme Court on Friday afternoon gave Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal interim bail till June 1 

The court also said pleas to extend relief beyond that date would be heard next week 

Mr Kejriwal's legal team had sought bail till July, i.e., till after the election and the formation of the new government. 

The ED accused him of favouring liquor barons in exchange for kickbacks. The party has denied the allegation. 

During his time in jail, Mr Kejriwal did not give up office. His party said he was running the Delhi government from prison.
