In a significant development in the ongoing Delhi liquor scam case, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued a fresh summons to Arvind Kejriwal, the leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Chief Minister of Delhi. Kejriwal has been called to appear for questioning on December 21, marking the second time the ED has summoned him in this case.
Second Summons from ED
This latest call from ED comes after the initial summons issued on November 2, where Kejriwal was first asked to present himself for questioning regarding the liquor scam. However, the Delhi Chief Minister did not appear before the investigating agency at that time.
Clash with Vipassana Plans
Interestingly, the timing of the summons coincides with Kejriwal’s planned Vipassana meditation retreat. The Chief Minister, known for his annual participation in a 10-day Vipassana course, is scheduled to leave for the retreat on December 19.
The Delhi liquor scam case has attracted the attention of two central investigating agencies. Earlier, in April, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) also called CM Kejriwal for questioning in connection with the same case. These developments underscore the seriousness with which the authorities are treating the investigation.
