Diabetic Delhi leader finally gets insulin jab in jail


Officials in Delhi’s prison gave Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal an insulin shot because his sugar level spiked. He’s been in jail since March 21, facing accusations in a money laundering case, which he denies.

Kejriwal’s arrest just before India’s general election raised concerns about political motives. Critics say it’s unfair to opposition parties. The government insists it’s part of normal investigations.

Kejriwal, who has diabetes, had health worries during his detention. His party said he didn’t get proper treatment, leading to high sugar levels.

He requested insulin for days, showing doctors his high sugar levels. Eventually, he got the shot after a court ordered it.

Kejriwal’s party blamed the BJP for denying him treatment, calling it a ploy to win sympathy in the election. The BJP denied this, saying his sugar levels were fine.

Kejriwal’s arrest is linked to a policy favoring liquor sellers, which led to allegations of corruption. He calls his arrest illegal and criticizes the investigation for lack of specific charges.
