Encourage fair, transparent & legal process: US on Kejriwal’s arrest

New Delhi, Mar 28 (UNI) United States reiterated its call for fair, transparent, and timely legal processes a day after India summoned a US diplomat and objected to remarks on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest.

In a response to a question during the State Department briefing about India summoning Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Gloria Berbena in Delhi and on the freezing of Congress’s bank accounts, Miller said, “We continue to follow these actions closely, including the arrest of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal. We are also aware of the Congress party’s allegations that tax authorities have frozen some of their bank accounts in a manner that will make it challenging to effectively campaign in the upcoming elections.”

“We encourage fair, transparent and timely legal processes for each of these issues,” Miller added.
