Kejriwal, aged 55, has been issued a summons under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The agency is scheduled to record his statement when he meets with the investigating officer in Delhi.
In the ongoing case, the ED has cited Kejriwal’s name in its chargesheets multiple times, asserting that the accused individuals had been in contact with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader regarding the formulation and execution of the now-defunct Delhi Excise Policy for 2021-22.
In a related development, the Supreme Court has denied two separate bail petitions from former Deputy Chief Minister and AAP leader Manish Sisodia. These cases involve allegations of corruption and money laundering associated with the alleged Delhi excise policy scam, with a provisional indication of a transfer totaling Rs 338 crore in the matter.
