ED Likely to Arrest Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal: AAP Ministers

Late Wednesday, Delhi ministers Atishi and Saurabh Bhardwaj claimed, citing unnamed sources, that the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) might arrest Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday. The speculation arose as Kejriwal skipped the ED’s summons related to the Delhi Excise Policy case.

AAP leader Atishi took to social media, stating, “News coming in that ED is going to raid @ArvindKejriwal’s residence tomorrow morning. Arrest likely.”

Health Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj echoed the sentiment, saying, “It is heard that tomorrow morning, ED is going to reach the house of Chief Minister Kejriwal and arrest him.”

These claims follow Kejriwal’s third summons by the ED, issued on December 22, asking him to appear on January 3 in connection with the alleged Delhi liquor scam case. Kejriwal, in his reply, expressed readiness to cooperate but deemed the notice “illegal.” He questioned its timing, suggesting it might be a move to hinder his election campaign for the 2024 parliamentary elections.

Earlier, the CM ignored the first summons on November 2, labeling it as “vague, motivated, and unsustainable in law,” alleging political motivations. The AAP raised concerns about the timing of the notice just before the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
