Delhi Jal Board Case: Arvind Kejriwal Skips ED Summons, What AAP Said?

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal did not appear for questioning at the Enforcement Directorate (ED) summons related to an alleged money laundering case connected to irregularities within the Delhi Jal Board.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) criticized the summons as "unlawful" and accused the BJP-led central government of utilizing the ED to target Kejriwal.

Kejriwal was summoned by the ED for interrogation on Monday regarding a money laundering investigation associated with suspected irregularities in the Delhi Jal Board. This marks the second instance under the anti-money laundering law where the 55-year-old politician, who also serves as the AAP national convenor, has been summoned.

He has previously disregarded eight summonses in the Delhi excise policy-linked money laundering case, labeling them as illegal.

A fresh and ninth summons in the excise policy case mandates Kejriwal to appear before an ED investigating officer on March 21. 

Why is ED still sending summonses to Kejriwal?

A representative of the AAP said that since the Rouse Avenue Court has granted bail to Kejriwal in connection with Enforcement Directorate (ED) complaints for skipping multiple summonses, then why is the agency still sending summonses to him?

The party also termed the summons of the agency as "illegal".
