Excise Policy Case: Kejriwal moves Delhi HC

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday moved the Delhi High Court challenging all the summons issued to him by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the excise policy case.

The Delhi HC’s division bench is likely to hear the matter on March 20, 2024.

In its ninth summons, the ED had asked CM Kejriwal to appear on March 21.

On March 16, a magisterial court granted bail to CM Kejriwal in complaints filed by the ED over non-compliance with the agency’s summons to him in a money laundering case related to the now-scrapped excise policy case.

Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Divya Malhotra of Rouse Avenue Court granted the chief minister relief on a bail bond of Rs 15,000 and a surety of Rs 1 lakh.

On February 27, the ED issued the eighth summons, to appear before it on March 4, to Kejriwal after he skipped the seventh summons issued on February 22.

On February 19, Kejriwal skipped the ED’s sixth summons in connection with the alleged excise policy scam.

The ED on January 31, had issued its fifth summons to Kejriwal, telling him to appear before it on February 2.

It had summoned him for the fourth time on January 13, asking him to appear before it on January 18.
