Kejriwal Agrees to Face ED Summons Virtually After March 12

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday responded to the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) eighth summons related to the money laundering probe concerning irregularities in the Delhi excise policy case.

Although he termed the summons as “illegal”, he agreed to answer the ED’s questioning virtually proposing a date after March 12.

According to the AAP, Kejriwal will attend the hearing through video conferencing. But the ED wants his physical presence saying that there is no provision for interrogation through video conferencing.

The ED issued its eighth summons to Kejriwal on February 27 asking him to appear before the investigating agency on March 4 at the agency’s headquarters.

The ED is investigating the alleged irregularities in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi excise policy (2021-22). The ED seeks Kejriwal’s statement on matters such as policy formulation and allegations of bribery.

Kejriwal has previously skipped seven summonses issued by the ED, terming them as “illegal and politically motivated.”
