ED issues 7th summon to Kejriwal; asks to appear on Feb 26

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate has served Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal its seventh summons in connection with a money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy case. ED asked Kejriwal to appear before the central agency on Monday, 26 February.

Notably, the previous six summonses were ignored by Kejriwal as “illegal”. He skipped the sixth summons on February 19 and told the investigating agency to wait until the case is in court.

Enforcement Directorate approached the court. AAP had advised the ED to wait for the court’s decision rather than send a summons again.

Considering ED summonses unconstitutional and political, Arvind Kejriwal missed six on November 2 and December 22 in 2023 and January 3, January 18, February 2 and February 18.

Kejriwal skipped the ED summons because he believed the agency wanted to arrest him and prevent him from campaigning.

As Kejriwal has refused to comply with summonses, the ED has filed a suit with the Delhi court.

Kejriwal appeared at Rouse Avenue Court via video conference on February 17 in response to an ED complaint about his summons noncompliance.
