Delhi Rouse court summons CM Kejriwal on March 16 after ED files fresh complaint for skipping summons

New Delhi: On Thursday, The Delhi Rouse Avenue Court issued a summons to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to appear in person on March 16 after a fresh complaint by the Enforcement Directorate against the Aam Aadmi Party chief for not complying with its summons in the alleged Delhi excise policy scam.

This recent development comes in the wake of previous legal actions taken by the Enforcement Directorate against Kejriwal for his failure to adhere to earlier summonses. According to official sources, the latest ED complaint pertains to summonses No. 4 to 8, sent by the agency under Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) between January 14 and March 4.

The hearing for the previous complaint, related to the initial three summonses issued by the ED, is also slated for March 16. The complaint against Mr. Kejriwal came two days after he skipped the eighth summons by the Central probe agency.

On the same day, the AAP chief said that he is ready to appear before the agency through videoconferencing on any day after March 12. Mr Kejriwal had appeared before the court, which had summoned him through videoconferencing on February 17, based on the ED complaint on February 3.

He had expressed his inability to appear personally for the hearing due to the ongoing budget session. While summoning him last month, the court had said Mr Kejriwal was “legally bound” to comply with the ED’s summons but “allegedly failed to do so”.
