ED case: Kejriwal to appear in court on July 12

New Delhi, July 9 (UNI) A Special Court in Delhi on Tuesday took cognizance of the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) supplementary chargesheet and issued production warrants against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and others in a case related to the city’s excise policy.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja after taking cognizance of the additional set of charges issued a production warrant for Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for appearance before the court on July 12.

The ED had earlier filed the main chargesheet on May 17 naming as accused both the AAP and Kejriwal, who was arrested by ED on March 21.

The probe agency claimed that a criminal conspiracy was hatched by AAP leaders, including Kejriwal and others, for creating loopholes in the excise policy to favour some liquor sellers in 2021-22.

Kejriwal is currently in the judicial custody in connection with CBI and ED cases.
