ED fees Kejriwal, AAP

In a money laundering case pertaining to the purported excise policy scandal, the Enforcement Directorate filed a charge sheet against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday, naming his Aam Aadmi Party as an accused party.

According to reports, the prosecution has filed a case before this special court, requesting that the accused be prosecuted under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

On March 21, the federal agency took 55-year-old Kejriwal, who is also the Aam Aadmi Party’s national convenor, into custody from his official home in this city. As of right now, he is free on temporary bail. In all, the ED has filed eight charge sheets in this investigation, which has resulted in the arrest of eighteen persons thus far. The agency filed a similar case against K Kavitha, the daughter of BRS leader and former Telangana chief minister Chandrashekar Rao, and four other people last week.

The ED had previously referred to the CM as the “kingpin and key conspirator” of the Delhi excise “scam.” He is accused of acting in concert with AAP officials, ministers from the Delhi government, and other individuals.

Kejriwal need to convey regret: Nirmala Nirmala Sitharaman attacked Delhi Chief Minister Bibhav Kumar for “shamelessly” going about with the accused instead of speaking out against the alleged assault on his party MP, Swati Maliwal. Sitharaman, speaking at a news conference held at the BJP headquarters, asked that the AAP convener provide an apology and a statement on the alleged attack on Maliwal at his official house on May 13. She said that while AAP MP Sanjay Singh had pledged to take action on the matter, Kejriwal was seen in Lucknow the next day with the accused, a close aide.
