NEW DELHI, Oct. 31, 2023 (TBINN)
Enforcement Directorate (E.D.) has summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for questioning in an excise policy-linked money-laundering case on November 2, 2023, official sources said.
Arvind Kejriwal, aged 55 years, has been issued the summons under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (P.M.L.A.) and according to the sources, the agency will record his statement once he deposes before the investigating officer of the case in Delhi.
The E.D. has mentioned Arvind Kejriwal’s name multiple times in its charge-sheets filed in the case and said the accused were in touch with the Aam Aadmi Party leader regarding the preparation and execution of the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22.
In a related development, Supreme Court rejected two separate bail pleas of former deputy chief minister and A.A.P. leader Manish Sisodia in corruption and money-laundering cases related to the alleged Delhi Excise Policy Scam and said a transfer of Rs 338 crore was tentatively established in the matter.
