A Delhi court on Wednesday rejected jailed Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's plea seeking permission to spend more time with his legal advisor to prepare for the cases pending against him in several parts of the country.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja of Rouse Avenue Court dismissed the petition after hearing the case briefly.

Enforcement Directorate (ED) special counsel Zohaib Hussain objected to the plea, saying the applicant was demanding legal meetings five times a week, which was clearly against the jail manual.

As per the rules, only one legal meeting is allowed in a week, and in special circumstances, two meetings may be allowed.

CM Kejriwal is already holding two legal meetings.

"If someone chooses to run the government from jail, you cannot be given exceptional treatment," the ED said.
