A local court in Delhi has taken notice of the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) seventh charge sheet against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja, upon reviewing the charge sheet, issued a summons for Kejriwal to appear in court on July 12.

The ED had arrested the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor on March 21 from his official residence, alleging that he was the main conspirator in the excise scam. The charge sheet accuses Kejriwal of being deeply involved in the irregularities and corruption associated with the formulation and implementation of the excise policy.

In response to these allegations, Kejriwal’s wife has claimed that the chief minister is being deliberately framed in this case. She asserts that the charges are politically motivated and part of a broader strategy to tarnish Kejriwal’s image and hinder his political career.

The Delhi excise policy case has been a significant point of contention, with allegations of corruption and misconduct leading to multiple arrests and investigations. The ED’s involvement has added a layer of complexity, with the agency focusing on money laundering aspects related to the policy.

This development underscores the ongoing legal and political battles surrounding the case and highlights the intense scrutiny faced by Arvind Kejriwal and his administration. The upcoming court appearance is expected to shed more light on the allegations and the defense mounted by Kejriwal and his legal team.
