Delhi Jal Board Case: CM Arvind Kejriwal Skips ED Summons

Arvind Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday skipped the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons concerning a money laundering case associated with purported irregularities in the Delhi Jal Board.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) also labeled the summons as “illegal,” attributing the action to the BJP government at the Centre, accusing it of exploiting the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to target Kejriwal.

Kejriwal had been summoned by the ED for interrogation on Monday, the 18th, in connection with a money laundering investigation linked to alleged irregularities in the Delhi Jal Board. This marks the second case filed under anti-money laundering law in which the 55-year-old politician, who is also the AAP national convenor, has been summoned.

Already facing summonses for questioning in the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case, Kejriwal has disregarded eight summonses in this instance so far, denouncing them as illegal.

A fresh and ninth notice in the excise policy case mandates his appearance before an ED investigating officer on March 21, 2024.
