Enforcement Directorate issues 5th summons to Arvind Kejriwal in excise policy money-laundering case

Date:

New Delhi, Jan 31: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a fresh and the fifth summons to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his questioning in the Delhi excise policy-linked money-laundering case, official sources said on Wednesday.

Kejriwal, also the convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), has skipped four earlier summonses issued by the federal agency for January 18 and January 3 and November 2 and December 21 in 2023. He had called these notices “illegal”.

It is understood that the fresh summons was for February 2.

It is alleged that the Delhi government's excise policy for 2021-22 to grant licences to liquor traders allowed cartelisation and favoured certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it, a charge repeatedly refuted by the AAP.

The policy was subsequently scrapped and Delhi Lt Governor VK Saxena recommended a CBI probe, following which the ED registered a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act.
