India court orders top anti-graft activist Kejriwal to stay in jail

An Indian court Friday ordered anti-corruption campaigner Arvind Kejriwal to remain behind bars for another two weeks as he continued to refuse to pay bail in a defamation case. A Delhi court extended Kejriwal’s custody to June 6, days after he was arrested for refusing to pay 10,000 rupees ($170) in bail over a defamation case filed by a leader of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that won a resounding victory in recent elections. Kejriwal, leader of the Aam Admi (Common Man) Party who was briefly Delhi chief minister, included BJP leader Nitin Gadkari in a list of politicians earlier this year that he alleged were the country’s most corrupt.
