New Delhi, May 27: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has moved the Supreme Court seeking extension of his interim bail by seven more days on health grounds in a money laundering case linked to the excise policy scam. The top court had on May 10 granted him interim bail for a period of 21 days to enable him to campaign for the Lok Sabha polls.
