ED files fresh court complaint against Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal for skipping summonses

Date:

New Delhi: The Enforcement Directorate has filed a fresh complaint before a Delhi court seeking prosecution of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for skipping multiple summonses issued to him in a money laundering case, official sources said on Wednesday.

The latest complaint pertains to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor not honouring summonses no. 4 to 8 sent by the federal probe agency under Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), they said.

The court of Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Divya Malhotra has listed the matter for hearing on Thursday.

The ED had earlier moved a local court seeking Kejriwal’s prosecution for not attending the first three summonses issued to him in the money laundering investigation linked to the Delhi excise policy.

The court has listed this matter for hearing on March 16.

Kejriwal, 55, had called all these eight ED summonses as “illegal” and informed the federal agency last time that he can be questioned via a video conferencing link after March 12.

The ED has filed the fresh complaint under section 174 IPC (non-attendance in obedience to an order from public servant) read with section 63(4) of the PMLA that speaks about “a person who intentionally disobeys any direction” apart from some other sections of the law.
