Delhi HC seeks ED response on Arvind Kejriwal’s plea against summons

New Delhi, Mar 20 (UNI) Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) response over a plea moved by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal.

This comes after the AAP Chief moved the court to challenge nine summons issued by the ED against him in connection with the money laundering case related to the alleged excise liquor policy scam.

Kejriwal has also challenged a case registered under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) linked to alleged irregularities in DJB.

Meanwhile, ED termed his plea as not maintainable and said the agency would file a reply on maintainability.

The next hearing date in this matter is scheduled for April 22 by the court.

ED had filed two criminal complaints against Kejriwal alleging non-compliance with the summons, for which he was granted bail by the court last week.

Kejriwal has skipped the summons, claiming that they are illegal.

On Monday, the ED issued a ninth summons to Kejriwal, asking him to appear before the investigating agency on March 21.
