Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was on Sunday questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for around 9 hours in connection with the liquor policy case.

Around 8.30 PM, the AAP supremo was seen coming out of the CBI headquarters in his car. He was summoned by the investigative agency at 11am.

It is the same case in connection with which the CBI in February arrested former Delhi deputy chief minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia. Kejriwal was questioned as a witness in the case.

“The CBI asked me a total of 56 questions. Everything is fake. The case is fake. I am convinced they don’t have anything on us, not a single piece of evidence,” Kejriwal told reporters after reaching home from the CBI headquarters.

“The CBI asked me everything starting from 2020, the year the liquor policy came into force, to the end of it,” Kejriwal added.

He went on to say: “This liquor policy case is a lie, fabricated. Honesty is our ideology. We are willing to die but won’t compromise with honesty. They are doing all this to defame us and our good, development work. We have become a national party now, which is why they are doing this to end us.”

Meanwhile, AAP leaders including Raghav Chadha and Sanjay Singh were detained by the Delhi Police for protesting near the CBI’s office. They were freed as soon as lKejriwal stepped out of the CBI office.
