NEW DELHI: The Enforcement Directorate on January 31 summoned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for the fifth time in the Delhi excise policy case. Kejriwal, the national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been asked to appear before the federal agency on February 2. The development comes as the ED is mulling over making AAP, a party in the Delhi excise policy case.
Kejriwal had missed all earlier appearances before the federal agency, which also triggered his arrest speculations. The Delhi Chief Minister has claimed that it is a conspiracy of BJP-led central government to arrest him before the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
The ED first summoned Arvind Kejriwal on Nov 2, then the second time on December 22, and the last two summons came on Jan 3 and Jan 18.
Senior AAP leaders Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Satyendar Jain are already in prison in the Delhi excise policy case.
