Excise Policy Case: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal Questioned By CBI

Date:

New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) questioned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in Tihar Jail on Tuesday, and recorded his statement in connection with the ongoing investigation into the Excise Policy case.

The CBI has also obtained permission for Kejriwal’s appearance before the concerned trial court, where he is scheduled to be produced on Wednesday.

Earlier, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday stayed the trial court order granting bail to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the excise policy money laundering case.

The vacation bench of Justice Sudhir Kumar Jain ruled in favor of the Enforcement Directorate’s plea, asserting that the trial court had failed to properly appreciate documents and arguments presented. Justice Jain noted that the trial court had not applied its mind and had inadequately considered the material evidence.

On Monday, ED filed written submissions before the Delhi High Court opposing any relief to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Excise Policy money laundering case. ED opposed the trial court order granting bail to Kejriwal and called the order illegal and perverse.

ED submitted that the impugned order passed by the trial court deserves to be stayed and set aside as a vacation judge has returned perverse findings in almost every paragraph of its order on both the facts and the law after admittedly not examining the material placed on record by the prosecution, ED told Delhi High Court.

Earlier on June 21, the High Court ordered the grant of an interim stay on bail while reserving its order and asked both sides to file their written submissions until Monday. Kejriwal then filed an appeal in the top court against the High Court order.

Kejriwal was arrested by the ED on March 21 in connection with a money laundering case relating to alleged irregularities in the now-cancelled Delhi excise policy 2021-22.
