Delhi Court Takes Cognizance Of ED's Chargesheet Against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, AAP In Liquor Policy Case

On Tuesday, a Delhi Court acknowledged the supplementary chargesheet submitted by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) involving Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in relation to an alleged liquor policy scam.

Special judge Kaveri Baweja from Rouse Avenue Courts recognized the seventh supplementary prosecution complaint lodged against both Kejriwal and the AAP concerning the money laundering case.

The court issued a production warrant for Kejriwal, scheduling it for July 12.

In related news, the Supreme Court addressed the removal of a discriminatory provision, closing a challenge to the section of the CrPC which stipulated that only male family members could accept summons.

Furthermore, the court acknowledged the ED's eighth supplementary chargesheet against accused individuals Vinod Chauhan and Ashish Mathur.

Kejriwal is currently held in judicial custody due to the corruption and money laundering allegations associated with the purported scam.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) interrogated Kejriwal in Tihar jail, documenting his statement. This action followed the Delhi High Court's suspension of the bail previously granted to him in the PMLA case.

Following the court's approval, the CBI interrogated Kejriwal in court on June 26, leading to his formal arrest in connection with the case.

Kejriwal had been apprehended by the ED on March 21. Subsequently, in May, the Supreme Court provided him interim bail until June 1, considering the general elections. However, Kejriwal surrendered on June 2.

Kejriwal has contested his arrest by the CBI and the three-day police custody remand before the Delhi High Court. Additionally, he has submitted a plea seeking bail in the corruption case. Both matters are scheduled for a hearing on July 17.
