Delhi court to pass order today on ED complaint against CM Kejriwal

Excise Case: In the Delhi Excise Policy case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a petition in the court against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not complying with its summons. The Delhi CM received five summonses from the Enforcement Directorate, but Kejriwal did not show up. The investigating agency then made contact with the court. The court will hear this matter today.

Following Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, which establishes the ED’s authority about summonses, document production, etc., the ED has filed a complaint against the non-appearance.

In the Rouse Avenue Court, Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Divya Malhotra heard arguments from Additional Solicitor General SV Raju on behalf of the ED. He had claimed that Kejriwal had been sent five separate summonses on different dates by the ED, offering him the chance to participate in the inquiry, but he had been unable to comply with the summonses each time and was purposefully not participating. Under such circumstances, Kejriwal ought to face the proper legal action by the guidelines. The case hearing was scheduled for February 7 by the court.
