Delhi liquor case: Arvind Kejriwal may get ED's 4th summon amid 'arrest' anticipation

New Delhi/IBNS: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to issue the fourth summon to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal amid the speculation over his possible arrest on Thursday, media reports said.

The speculation kickstarted after Delhi minister Atishi posted on X, "News coming in that ED is going to raid @ArvindKejriwal’s residence tmrw morning. Arrest likely."

The security around Kejriwal's residence was beefed up following the minister's claim.

Now as per a report by NDTV, the ED is examining the reply sent by Kejriwal who on Wednesday snubbed the third summon sent to him by the probe agency.

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

The Central Bureau of Investigation (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.

In April last year, the CBI questioned Kejriwal as a witness for nine hours, after which he slammed the agency.

"The CBI asked me 56 questions (but) everything is fake. I am convinced they don't have anything on us... not a single piece of evidence," he said after being quizzed at its Lodhi Road office.
