Protests in Delhi after Kejriwal’s arrest, two railway stations closed

Protests erupted in Delhi after the arrest of Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal. Due to this, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) announced the closure of two railway stations today on Friday. Indian media NDTV reported this information in a report.

Delhi’s ITO Metro station will remain closed till further orders, DMRC said in a statement today. Earlier, however, DMRC had said that the metro station will remain closed from 8 am to 6 pm. DMRC added the words ’till further instructions’ in the later revised notification.

Apart from this, the Lok Kalyan Marg metro station has also been closed by DMRC. Because the supporters of Aam Aadmi Party have shown massive protests in this area as well.

The Prime Minister of India’s official residence is located in this area near Delhi Metro Station. So as an additional precaution, DMRC has announced the closure of Lok Kalyan Marg metro station.

In a post on social media platform X, DMRC said, ‘On the advice of Delhi Police, apart from ITO Metro station, Lok Kalyan Marg Metro station will remain closed till further orders.’

Enforcement Directorate (ED) officials raided Kejriwal’s residence on Thursday evening to question him on a search warrant in the excise case. At that time he was arrested. ED has already arrested former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and AAP MP Sanjay Singh in the Excise corruption case. Another minister Rajkumar Anand’s house was searched.

Indian court has ordered Arvind Kejriwal to be sent to ED custody on Friday. He will remain in ED custody till March 28. The order was issued after the hearing of the case in the court of special CBI court judge Kaveri Bawejar.

According to the Indian media Hindustan Times, the ED requested to take the Chief Minister of Delhi into custody for 10 days for questioning. The court ordered him to be remanded in ED custody till March 28 for questioning. He has been asked to appear in court on March 28.

ED officials say that summons have been issued against him in the last one year but he has not appeared many times. He was arrested for this.
