New Delhi, May 10: The Supreme Court on Friday granted interim bail to Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal till June 1. A bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta passed the order after it heard both sides. The interim bail has been granted in view of the ongoing Lok Sabha election — though the Enforcement Directorate opposed it and said campaigning for the election was not a constitutional right. An interim bail till June 1 means Kejriwal will be out of jail when Delhi votes on May 25. On June 2, Kejriwal will have to surrender. He will be in jail on June 4, the counting and the result day.
