New Delhi: The Supreme Court Registry has declined to list a plea filed by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for a seven-day extension of his interim bail ending on June 1.

According to official sources, the Registry termed the application by Kejriwal as not maintainable as a bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta which granted him interim bail, had also given him liberty to approach the trial court for regular bail.

The SC official also said since the judgment has already been reserved on his petition against the arrest, his instant plea had no connection with the matter before the court.

Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in the liquor policy scam case. He was on May 10 granted interim bail for campaign during the Lok Sabha polls till June 1.

In a fresh application, Kejriwal, sought seven-day extension of his interim bail beyond June 1 to undergo medical tests.

On Tuesday, a bench of Justices J K Maheshwari and K V Vishwanathan told senior advocate A M Singhvi who mentioned the plea on behalf of Kejriwal for urgent hearing that the CJI would decide about listing of the application.

Kejriwal, in his plea, claimed that after his arrest he had lost seven kilogram weight. His Ketone level is very high. This could be a symptom of a serious disease. "The doctors of Max hospital, treating him at present, have advised some tests," he said in his plea.
