Kejriwal Moves Sessions Court Challenging Excise Case Summons

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal approached a sessions court in Delhi challenging the summons issued to him by a lower court on two complaints filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) for evading its summonses in a money-laundering case related to the alleged excise policy scam.

The Sessions Court is likely to hear Kejriwal’s petition on Thursday.

Kejriwal moved the Sessions Court against orders passed by the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) that directed Kejriwal to appear before the court on March 16.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had filed two complaints before the magisterial court seeking prosecution of Kejriwal for skipping multiple summonses issued to him in the case.

The ED had also moved the magisterial court seeking Kejriwal’s prosecution for not attending the first three summonses issued to him in the money-laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy.

Kejriwal has till date skipped eight summonses issued by the ED.
