    CM Kejriwal alleges political vendetta by ED, demands bail in Delhi High Court

    Date:

    Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has termed himself a victim of political vendetta by the Enforcement Directorate in an ongoing case. In his response filed before the Delhi High Court, Kejriwal has alleged that ED is acting on the directions of the rival party at the Centre to humiliate and defame them.

    Kejriwal claimed that ED has illegally arrested him without any evidence and is pursuing the case with malafide intentions. He argued that the probe agency follows a standard modus operandi of coercing co-accused to make misleading statements to frame the target person.

    The CM denied receiving any funds from the foreign tour organizers as alleged by ED. He stated that the expenses of his Goa visit were borne by the Delhi government and not any co-accused individual. Kejriwal said that he is willing to fully cooperate with the lawful investigation but will also fight to protect his dignity and constitutional rights.

    Kejriwal urged the court to grant him bail, saying the co-accused statements cannot be treated as primary evidence to fabricate charges against him. He stressed that he has led an exemplary life with no criminal record or money trail of proceeds of till date. The matter is ongoing in the Delhi High Court.
