Delhi excise policy case: Arvind Kejriwal asks ED to retract 'illegal, politically motivated' summons

| @indiablooms | 21 Dec 2023, 11:08 am

New Delhi/IBNS: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to retract the summons, which he called "illegal" and "politically motivated", served to him in connection with the alleged excise policy scam in the city, media reports said.

Like last month, Kejriwal on Thursday skipped the summons.

The probe agency is investigating the Delhi excise policy which has handed over liquor shop licences to private players.

The CBI alleges that liquor companies and middlemen were "actively involved in irregularities in the framing and implementation" of the excise policy.

Former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister and Kejriwal's colleague in the party, Manish Sisodia, is already in jail in the same case as the prime accused.

The agency also claims close associates of  Sisodia - Amit Arora, Dinesh Arora, and Arjun Pandey - collected commissions from liquor licensees and delivered them to the accused public servants.
