ED summons Kejriwal on Nov 2 in Delhi excise policy scam

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a summons to the Delhi CM and AAP national convener Arvind Kejriwal to appear before them on November 2nd regarding the Delhi excise policy scam.

The case has seen three notable arrests to date

The case has seen three notable arrests to date, including Aam Aadmi Party Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh, former Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia, and AAP’s communication in-charge Vijay Nair.

In February, Sisodia faced initial arrest by the CBI followed by another arrest by the ED in March. The ED’s chargesheet identified Sisodia as a “key conspirator.” Today, the Supreme Court rejected his bail application in the ongoing case. Justices Sanjiv Khanna and SVN Bhatti, on the bench, were informed by the prosecution about the assurance that the trial would conclude within six to eight months. They stated that if the trial progresses sluggishly or delays, Sisodia would have the right to file a new bail plea in three months.

Earlier this month, AAP MP Sanjay Singh was apprehended by the ED, which accused him of benefiting from unlawful funds or kickbacks, claiming they were proceeds of criminal activity linked to the liquor policy (2021-22) scam. The ED alleged his involvement in a conspiracy to gather kickbacks from liquor entities, citing a close association with Dinesh Arora dating back to 2017, a connection disclosed by the latter and evidenced by call records.
