Now Arvind Kejriwal gets CBI summon in Delhi liquor Scam Case

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Friday summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to join the investigation in the alleged excise policy scam case on Sunday. Sources in the CBI said they have uncovered fresh evidence and have grounds to question the Chief Minister now. According to the sources, Kejriwal`s testimony will be recorded by a team of top officials on Sunday.

The ED is misleading the court with false evidence

The AAP chief earlier accused the Enforcement Directorate of “misleading” the court with false evidence in the excise policy case. The AAP national convenor said this while talking to reporters after attending the Ambedkar Jayanti celebrations at the Delhi Assembly.

“The ED is taking false statements by torturing people and pressuring them. Even in the case of Sanjay Singh, it has come to the fore that the accused gave a different statement and the ED has written something else in the charge sheet,” Kejriwal said, replying to a question about the ED’s charge that his former deputy Manish Sisodia destroyed his mobile phones.

The Chief Minister said that the ED has claimed that Sisodia has broken his phones but many of those phones are in the agency’s custody. “The ED is misleading the court with false evidence, torturing people, and making false statements. There is nothing in this whole matter, the whole matter is fabricated and is based on false evidence. This is not a good thing,” he said.

The AAP leader also attacked the anti-national forces in the country that don’t want the country to progress. He added that those who don’t want quality education for the children of the poor and Dalits of the country, have sent Manish Sisodia to jail. Those who sent him to jail are enemies of the country, he added.

Delhi Chief Minister has now been summoned by the Central Bureau of Investigation for questioning in connection with the alleged corruption in the now-scrapped alcohol sales policy in the national capital that led to the arrest of his deputy Manish Sisodia in February. He has been reportedly asked to appear before the agency on Sunday, sources said.

The CBI has claimed that the Kejriwal government received kickbacks in crores for formulating a favourable policy and the funds were channelled into the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) election campaign in Goa last year. However, Delhi’s ruling party has categorically dismissed the charges as “political vendetta” and attempts by the BJP to settle political scores.
