"We will approach a higher court against the order issued by the district court which sent Kejriwal to judicial custody," party leader Sanjay Singh told the media after meeting Kejriwal in Tihar Jail.

AAP leaders and Kejriwal's wife Sunita met the former Delhi chief minister in prison. A court on Wednesday sent him to jail for two days after he refused to furnish a bail bond of Rs.10,000.

BJP leader Nitin Gadkari, who Kejriwal called "corrupt", had filed a defamation case against the Aam Aadmi Party leader.
