Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has taken legal action by filing a petition in the Rouse Avenue Court to secure access to insulin during his detention in Tihar jail. The court commenced proceedings on Kejriwal’s petition at 2 p.m.

Seeking Medical Assistance

Kejriwal’s petition emphasizes his urgent need for insulin due to his acute diabetes and fluctuating blood sugar levels. He has requested permission to consult his doctor via daily video conferencing sessions lasting 15 minutes. Additionally, Kejriwal seeks approval for his wife to participate in these video conferences, as reported by Live Law.

Health Concerns

The Delhi Chief Minister has expressed grave concerns about his deteriorating health while in judicial custody. He highlights the significant risk posed by his fluctuating blood sugar levels, underscoring the importance of immediate medical intervention.

Government Inquiry

The development follows Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena’s directive to the Director General of Prisons to provide a detailed report on Kejriwal’s insulin-related allegations. This move came after accusations from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) regarding the denial of insulin and home-cooked food to Kejriwal in Tihar jail.

Allegations of Conspiracy

AAP leaders, including Delhi cabinet minister Atishi, have accused the prison authorities of conspiring against Kejriwal’s well-being by withholding insulin and obstructing medical consultations. Atishi cited alarming levels of blood sugar and reiterated Kejriwal’s urgent need for medical attention.

Commitment to Health

The Lieutenant Governor’s office has assured prompt action in response to Kejriwal’s health concerns. Despite the subject falling under the jurisdiction of the AAP government, Saxena has pledged to prioritize the Chief Minister’s well-being and ensure compliance with medical protocols.

Ongoing Developments

At present, the court is deliberating on Kejriwal’s petition, which underscores the critical importance of timely medical intervention for individuals in custody, especially those with pre-existing health conditions.
