During the court proceedings before Judge Kaveri, ED counsel Zoheb Hossain highlighted that Arvind Kejriwal is currently in court custody due to the ongoing case. Hossain expressed concern over Kejriwal’s dietary habits in jail, stating that despite claiming to have high diabetes, Kejriwal was seen consuming mangoes, sweets, and sugar with his tea. Hossain emphasized that Kejriwal was permitted prescribed home-cooked food but chose to consume items that could potentially affect his health.

Hossain further stated that these actions could potentially serve as grounds for bail. The agency uncovered these details after reaching out to Tihar jail and requesting information regarding Kejriwal’s diet and medications.
