Shocking! Will Kejriwal face arrest? ED’s third strike in dramatic liquor case

TAGS

In an escalating drama that’s gripping the nation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned for the third time by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the controversial liquor policy case. This sensational development comes a day after Kejriwal snubbed the agency’s second summons, leaving for a 10-day vipassana retreat. The stakes are sky-high as the ED hints at the possibility of seeking a non-bailable warrant against the AAP chief if he skips the January 3 summons.

AAP leader and Delhi Minister Saurabh Bharadwaj has slammed the summons as a display of political posturing rather than a legal process. Amidst this high-stakes legal battle, Kejriwal’s absence due to his meditation retreat has added fuel to the fire, with Bharadwaj accusing the central government of political maneuvering.

Kejriwal, known for his transparent and honest approach, has previously called the ED’s actions politically motivated and illegal. He had asked the ED to retract their summons issued during the Assembly elections, accusing them of conducting a fishing and roving inquiry at the behest of the BJP. Despite being questioned by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in April, Kejriwal has not been named an accused by the agency.

The Delhi chief minister’s fiery response, claiming the case to be fake and lacking evidence, has only intensified the drama. With former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia’s arrest and AAP Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh’s custody in the same case, the political temperature is at an all-time high. Speculation of Kejriwal’s arrest post-questioning by the ED has been rife, adding a layer of suspense to this political thriller.
