Production Warrant Issued for CM Kejriwal in Delhi Liquor Scam Case, Troubles Deepen

The Rouse Avenue Court in Delhi has taken cognizance of the fresh chargesheet filed by the ED against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja has issued a production warrant for Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party for July 12.

On Tuesday, the Rouse Avenue Court took cognizance of the seventh supplementary chargesheet filed concerning the excise policy and issued a production warrant for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the money laundering case registered by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

Production Warrant Also Issued Against Vinod Chauhan

The court also took cognizance of the supplementary chargesheet filed by the ED against Vinod Chauhan and issued a production warrant for his appearance before the court on July 12.

The ED has named Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party as accused in this chargesheet. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja, upon taking cognizance of the chargesheets, stated that there is sufficient material on record to proceed against the accused individuals.

The case has been scheduled for July 12, when all the accused will be presented before the court.

ED Claims Sufficient Evidence Against Kejriwal

On May 17, the ED filed a 200-page chargesheet accusing Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in this case. The 55-year-old AAP convener, Arvind Kejriwal, was arrested by the federal agency on March 21, just hours after the Delhi High Court rejected his request for interim protection from arrest.

The ED has alleged that Kejriwal was intricately involved in policy formation, the bribery scheme, and the ultimate use of the proceeds of the crime.

The federal agency stated that Kejriwal is involved in serious economic offences and that there is sufficient evidence on record to link him to the crime of money laundering.

ED's Allegations

The ED stated that another accused, Vinod Chauhan, who managed the transfer of ₹25.5 crores from Delhi to Goa, was closely associated with Kejriwal.

The agency filed its eighth supplementary chargesheet on June 28, naming Chauhan and Mathur as accused. The ED arrested Chauhan under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) from its Goa regional office on May 3, while Mathur, Chauhan's alleged associate, has been named in the chargesheet without being arrested.
