Delhi Excise Coverage Case: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on December 21 for questioning in reference to the Delhi Excise Coverage case.
Kejriwal has been summoned by the ED in accordance with the Prevention of Cash Laundering Act (PMLA).
That is the second time that the Aam Aadmi Get together (AAP) chief has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). He was earlier summoned by the central investigative company on November 2. Nevertheless, the Delhi CM had determined to skip the summons.
The AAP chief had claimed that the ED’s notification calling him in for interrogation was illegal and politically motivated. The Delhi Chief Minister had urged that the ED summons be withdrawn.
“The said summons is not clear as to the capacity in which I am being summoned i.e. as a witness or a suspect in the above-mentioned case. Please recall the said summons, which is, to say the least, vague and motivated and I am advised, unsustainable in law,” Kejriwal had acknowledged in his letter to Jogendar, Assistant Director, ED.
