Kejriwal, facing ED’s summons related to the Delhi Excise Policy case, skipped the summons on Wednesday. Atishi, Delhi’s law and PWD minister, posted on X, “News coming in that ED is going to raid @ArvindKejriwal’s residence tomorrow morning.Arrest likely.”
Following this, health minister Saurabh Bharadwaj also claimed ED’s impending arrest of Kejriwal. These assertions emerged after the chief minister skipped the third ED summons issued on January 3 regarding the alleged Delhi liquor scam case.
Kejriwal, in his reply to ED, expressed willingness to cooperate but deemed the notice “illegal” and questioned its timing, suggesting political motives ahead of the 2024 parliamentary elections. The AAP also raised concerns about the timing of the notice just before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
