Delhi Court Summons Arvind Kejriwal On ED’s Complaint – Big blow to Arvind Kejriwal, court summons him on ED’s complaint
Rouse Avenue Court has summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on ED’s complaint, as the AAP chief ignored five notices from the Enforcement Directorate. He was asked to appear for questioning in the liquor excise policy scam case.
The AAP leader has not yet responded to the 5 summons sent by the Enforcement Directorate in the money laundering case related to the New Excise Policy.

Today this matter was heard in Rouse Avenue Court of Delhi and the court has issued notice to Arvind Kejriwal to appear.
Aam Aadmi Party’s statement has come out on the notice issued by Rouse Avenue Court to Arvind Kejriwal. The party has said that they are studying the court order. Will take action as per law. Will tell the court how all the ED summons were illegal.
What was in the ED complaint copy?
- Kejriwal deliberately did not come on summons
- If people holding such high positions do not respond to summons and do not follow the law, it sends a wrong message.
- ED has so far arrested a total of 14 people in this case. In which there are people like Sanjay Singh, Manish Sisodia and Vijay Nair. It was necessary for the ED to give the material to Arvind Kejriwal to carry forward its investigation, to trace the process of crime and to find out the role of other people.
- A criminal conspiracy was hatched to allegedly benefit the Aam Aadmi Party and its leaders in the liquor policy. Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal is also the national convenor of Aam Aadmi Party and a member of the National Executive Committee.
- Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22 was made in a very secret manner and in connivance with the main beneficiaries who were to be given benefits/gifts in return for illegal economic benefits
