Delhi Sessions Court refuses to stay magistrate summons issued to Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi/IBNS/UNI: Delhi Sessions Court on Friday refused to stay the summons issued to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal by the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Court which directed him to appear before the court on Saturday.

The ACMM Court issued a summons to the Delhi Chief Minister on the complaint of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) over non-compliance of summons in the money laundering case under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) in the Delhi Excise Policy case.

CBI Special Judge Rakesh Syal after hearing arguments on behalf of Counsel for ED and Defence Counsel passed an order that request for staying the proceedings before the trial court is declined.

Kejriwal had moved two criminal revision petitions against the summoning order of the ACMM court before the Sessions Court at Rouse Avenue in Delhi.

Counsel for Kejriwal submitted that since the next date was fixed before the trial court the proceedings may be stayed till the disposal of these revision petitions.

The Sessions Court after hearing the plea on behalf of Kejriwal seeking personal appearance before the court said that the same can be filed before the ACMM court.

Counsel for Kejriwal submitted before the court that he has given the reasons against the summons for his absence as he has responsibilities as a CM on all days. But ED didn't consider this.
