Arvind Kejriwal News Live Updates Delhi Police seeks 4 days judicial custody of Bibhav Kumar

The Delhi Police has sought four days of judicial custody for Bibhav Kumar, the former AAP councillor who was arrested on charges of extortion. The police filed an application in the court seeking Kumar to be remanded to judicial custody for further investigation.

Kumar was arrested on Thursday after a complaint was filed by a builder alleging that he had demanded a bribe of Rs 2 crore. He was caught red-handed while accepting Rs 10 lakh as the first installment of the bribe. The police have also recovered several incriminating documents and electronic evidence from his possession.

The arrest of Kumar has caused a stir in the political circles as he was considered to be a close aide of Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi. Kumar was a prominent member of the Aam Aadmi Party and had served as a councillor in the past.

The Aam Aadmi Party has distanced itself from Kumar and stated that it does not support any illegal activities. Kejriwal has also condemned the actions of Kumar and stated that the law should take its own course in the matter.

The case has once again brought the issue of corruption and extortion in the political arena to the forefront. It has raised questions about the ethical standards of the politicians and their associates.

The court will now decide on the plea of the Delhi Police for the judicial custody of Kumar. The investigation is ongoing and more details are expected to emerge in the coming days.

The arrest of Kumar has sent shockwaves through the political landscape and has once again highlighted the need for transparency and accountability in the political system.
