.Arvind Kejriwa challenged the additional chief metropolitan magistrate's summons to him on ED's accusations of noncompliance in Delhi Rouse Avenue Court. Kejriwal petitions special judge Rakesh Syal for revision. The application will be heard by the court. Kejriwal had dodged eight Enforecement Directorate summons in the excise policy matter. Kejriwal was summoned again by the ED to appear in court on 16 March. On March 7, ED filed a second complaint at Rouse Avenue Court for failing to respond to the Delhi liquor policy money laundering summons.Kejriwal claims ED summonses were "illegal". The BJP is accused by the AAP of suppressing opposition parties and overthrowing governments. "They have sent me so many notices as if I am the biggest terrorist in the country," Kejriwal claimed last week. He has always stated the BJP intended to crush his party since it was the fastest-growing party that might challenge them nationwide. The ED wants Kejriwal's statement on excise policy drafting, pre-finalization discussions, and bribery.On December 2, 2023, the ED filed a sixth charge sheet against AAP leader Sanjay Singh and his aide Sarvesh Mishra, alleging that the AAP utilized ₹45 crore in policy kickbacks for their 2022 Goa assembly elections campaign. The excise policy replaced a sales-volume-based regime with a trader license fee to revive the city's liquor economy. It promised swankier stores and better shopping. The policy brought booze discounts and deals in Delhi for the first time.
