News Live Updates on the Arvind Kejriwal ED Case, January 4: In response to an ED summons on Thursday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated that the goal of the Bharatiya Janata Party is political intimidation rather than a fair probe.  "If corruption really happened, then where did crores of Rupees go?" he asked. The reality is that there was no wrongdoing. The news conference follows statements made late yesterday night on X by a number of AAP leaders, including Atishi and the party's national general secretary (organization), Sandeep Pathak, suggesting that Kejriwal's house may be searched today and that he may be detained. Party leaders reportedly convened last evening to deliberate on the recent development, according to sources. The leader is scheduled to leave on his three-day tour of Gujarat amid rumors of an arrest. On Wednesday, Kejriwal declined to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the Delhi Excise Policy Case for the third time. Rather, the AAP convenor wrote a letter to the agency claiming that their notification was unlawful, but he was still willing to assist with the investigation. In addition, he questioned the ED's notice timeliness, posing the question, "Why are notices sent right before the polls?"
