Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Skips Sixth ED Summons

| Updated: February 19, 2024 13:16

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal skipped the sixth summons of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday.

The AAP convenor is being sought for questioning in a money laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy.

Terming the agency’s sixth summons to its national convener as “illegal”, the party said that the ED should wait for the court’s decision instead of repeatedly sending summonses to Kejriwal. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had approached a city court after Kejriwal skipped multiple summonses.

On Saturday, the court had granted exemption to Kejriwal from personal appearance for the day in connection with the complaint filed by the central agency.

The application moved by Kejriwal’s counsel stated that the Budget Session of the Delhi assembly has commenced on February 15 and shall continue till the first week of March. He will physically appear before the court on the next date of hearing on March 16, it said.

AAP asserts Delhi CM Kejriwal won’t comply with ED summons, deeming them illegal. The party urges ED to await the court’s decision instead of repeatedly issuing summonses to Kejriwal.

On February 2, Arvind Kejriwal skipped the ED’s summons for the fifth time. The summons to the Delhi chief minister followed the fourth summons, which he had skipped on January 18.

According to the ED, the agency wanted to record Kejriwal’s statement in the case on issues like the formulation of policy, meetings held before it was finalised, and allegations of bribery.

In its sixth charge sheet filed in the case on December 2, 2023, naming AAP leader Sanjay Singh and his aide Sarvesh Mishra, the ED has claimed that the AAP used kickbacks worth ₹45 crore generated via the policy as part of its assembly elections campaign in Goa in 2022.
