The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Monday, 30 October, summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on 2 November for questioning in connection with the state’s excise policy case.
In April, the Central Bureau of Investigation had summoned Kejriwal for questioning on the same issue, though he was not named as an accused in the First Information Report filed by the agency on August 17 last year.
The fresh summons was issued on the same day the Supreme Court denied bail to Aam Aadmi Party leader and former Delhi Deputy CM Manish Sisodia in connection with the case.
“It’s clear that Centre’s only goal is to finish AAP,” party spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said, as per news agency PTI. “For this, they are leaving no stone unturned, including creating a fake case. The idea is to send Arvind Kejriwal to jail and destroy the Aam Aadmi Party,” he added.
