Enforcement Directorate Summons Arvind Kejriwal for 4th Round of Questioning

As Delhi Chief Minister Faces Ongoing Probe, ED Reissues Summons, Igniting Controversy Amid AAP Leader's Prior Non-compliance Claims.

In the latest development surrounding the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal receives a fourth summons from the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The political landscape intensifies as Kejriwal, also the national convener of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), is called to appear at the agency’s headquarters on January 18.

Tensions rise as the CM, slated for a three-day visit to Goa from January 18 to 20, clashes with the ED’s persistent pursuit of his deposition. Despite Kejriwal’s previous refusals, the ED asserts that its summonses align with legal procedures, setting the stage for potential further controversy. The ongoing probe implicates the AAP leader about the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22, with the ED hinting at potential supplementary charges that could implicate the party itself as a beneficiary of alleged kickbacks.

The case centres on accusations of cartelization and favouritism within the liquor licensing process, a claim vehemently denied by the AAP.
