CBI Summons Arvind Kejriwal: The CBI summoned Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for questioning in connection with Delhi’s liquor policy. In such a situation, their difficulty may increase in the coming days. Meanwhile, sources told that how did Kejriwal’s name figure in this?
It is alleged that during interrogation in the case, a bureaucrat of the Excise Department gave a statement to the CBI that Sisodia had called him to Kejriwal’s house. During this, Satyendar Jain was also present here. Sisodia had verbally asked him to prepare a draft to increase the commission for liquor traders. It was only after this came to light that the CBI summoned Kejriwal on Sunday (April 16).
What is being claimed?
It is being claimed that Sameer Mahendru had told the investigating agency that Kejriwal had made a video call on Face Time from Vijay Nair’s phone and told him that Nair was his child. He trusts them. Mahendru claims that crores of rupees were given in this case on the orders of Kejriwal, which was spent in the Goa elections. Probing the money laundering case related to the excise policy, the ED had also alleged that the money received from the policy was used by Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party during the Goa assembly elections.
PM Modi mentioned
AAP’s Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said that CBI is sending summons to Arvind Kejriwal. I Prime Narendra Modi that you and your government are immersed in corruption from head to toe and Kejriwal’s fight will not stop by sending summons to CBI. The conspiracy hatched by you to arrest Kejriwal on April 16, send him to jail and take action against him will not suppress his voice.
What’s the matter?
CBI is probing the alleged irregularities in the liquor policy, for which the Central Investigation Agency had arrested former Delhi Deputy CM Sisodia on February 26. The ED is also interrogating Sisodia in connection with the money laundering case related to the Excise Policy, claiming that Sisodia is the main conspirator in the corruption in the Excise Policy.
It is alleged that in the Excise Policy of 2021-22 of the Delhi government, some dealers were benefited for giving licenses to liquor traders, who allegedly paid bribes for this. However, AAP rejected the allegation.
