Arvind Kejriwal Skips 6th ED Summons

Arvind Kejriwal Skips 6th ED Summons

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is once again set to ignore the Enforcement Directorate's (ED) summons, marking the sixth instance of his non-appearance in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) reiterated its stance, labeling the summons as "illegal" and arguing that the matter is currently sub judice.

In a recent statement, the AAP highlighted that the ED had already approached the court on this issue. The party suggested that rather than repeatedly issuing summonses, the ED should await the court's verdict on the validity of the matter.

The ongoing legal clash between Kejriwal and the ED has intensified, with the probe agency persistently summoning the Delhi Chief Minister, who has consistently refused to comply. This latest summons follows a court directive instructing Kejriwal to explain his previous non-compliance.

Kejriwal's refusal to engage with the ED raises the possibility of him becoming the first sitting chief minister to face arrest. The ED is investigating money laundering allegations related to the Delhi liquor excise policy, which involves accusations of kickbacks received by the AAP government, purportedly channeled into funding election expenses in various states.

Although Kejriwal is not named as an accused, two senior AAP members, including former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, have faced arrests. The AAP vehemently denies all allegations, alleging that the BJP is leveraging investigative agencies to target the party.
