ED charges Kejriwal, AAP

The Enforcement Directorate on Friday filed a charge sheet against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the money laundering case linked to the alleged excise policy scam, and also named his Aam Aadmi Party as accused.

The prosecution complaint has been filed before a special court here and the accused have been sought to be charged under the provisions of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), sources said.

The federal agency had arrested 55-year-old Kejriwal, also the national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party, from his official residence here on March 21. He is currently out of jail on interim bail. Overall this is the eighth charge sheet filed by the ED in this case in which it has arrested 18 people so far. Last week, a similar complaint was filed by the agency against BRS leader and former Telangana chief minister Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter K Kavitha and four others.

The CM has earlier been called the “kingpin and key conspirator” of the Delhi excise “scam” by the ED. It is alleged he acted in collusion with ministers of Delhi government, AAP leaders and other persons. 

Kejriwal should apologise: Nirmala

Nirmala Sitharaman slammed Delhi CM for not speaking on the issue of alleged attack on his party MP Swati Maliwal, and said he is instead “shamelessly” moving around with accused Bibhav Kumar. Addressing a press conference at the BJP headquarters, Sitharaman demanded the AAP convener make a statement on the matter and tender an apology for the alleged assault on Maliwal at his official residence on May 13. She said AAP MP Sanjay Singh had promised action in the case but Kejriwal was seen the next day in Lucknow with the accused, a close aide.
