New Delhi, 31st January 2024: In a significant development in the ongoing investigation into the liquor scam case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued a fifth summons to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday. He has been asked to appear before the agency on February 2. Kejriwal has been summoned for questioning regarding allegations of money laundering related to the liquor scam.

Earlier, on November 2, December 21, January 3, and January 18, Kejriwal had refused to appear before the ED, terming the summons as ‘illegal’ and ‘politically motivated’. Kejriwal also raised questions about the ED’s actions, accusing the agency of playing the role of “judge, jury, and executioner” and questioning its legitimacy.

It is unlikely that Kejriwal will comply with the ED summons this time as well, marking the fifth occasion where he has been summoned by the agency.

Last week, the ED issued a fourth summons to Arvind Kejriwal, directing him to appear before the agency on January 18. It should be noted that before this, Kejriwal had refused to appear before the ED on three occasions – November 2, December 21, and January 3.
