Kejriwal skips ED summons in Delhi Jal Board case


Share post:


New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal skipped the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons on Monday in connection with a money laundering probe linked to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Jal Board.

The party termed the ED’s summons “illegal” and accused the BJP of using the ED to arrest Kejriwal before the Lok Sabha elections.

“CM Kejriwal will not appear before the ED today,” the party said, questioning why the ED is sending summons when bail has been granted to him by the court.

The ED summoned Kejriwal for questioning on Monday in a second case registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) linked to alleged irregularities in DJB.

The AAP chief is already facing summons for questioning in the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case. He has skipped eight summonses in this case, terming them illegal.

Yesterday, the investigating agency issued a ninth summons to Kejriwal in the excise policy scam case and asked him to appear before the ED on March 21.
