Kejriwal Faces 7th ED Summons in Excise Policy Case, Asked to Appear Feb 26

Kejriwal Faces 7th ED Summons in Excise Policy Case, Asked to Appear Feb 26

The Enforcement Directorate has once again called upon Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to attend before it for the seventh time, slated for Monday, February 26, concerning the excise policy case, as per sources cited by news agency ANI. This recurrence follows Kejriwal’s prior non-appearance despite repeated summons.

On February 19, Kejriwal skipped the agency’s summons for the sixth instance, prompting the AAP to assert that the agency should await court decisions before issuing further summonses. The party conveyed, “ED should respect the legal process and await the court’s verdict instead of persistently summoning Delhi CM Kejriwal,” according to news agency PTI.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal declined to respond to the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) sixth summons for questioning in the ongoing excise policy investigation.

Preceding this, Kejriwal informed the court of his eagerness to personally attend in connection with a plea filed by the ED but cited commitments to the budget session and floor test as hindrances.

Appearing before Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Divya Malhotra via video link, CM Kejriwal explained, “I intended to attend court proceedings, but the unexpected trust vote emerged. Our ongoing budget session extends until the first week of March.

Please propose a date thereafter, and I’ll duly comply.” The investigative agency had issued the sixth summons to Kejriwal on February 14, urging his presence at its headquarters on February 19.
