Arvind Kejriwal ‘ready’ to face Enforcement Directorate via video

Arvind kejriwal, the chief minister of delhi, has notified the Enforcement Directorate that he is prepared to appear before it via video conference for interrogation in connection with a money laundering investigation related to the now-canceled liquor policy matter.
Kejriwal received an eighth summons from the Enforcement Directorate last month, requesting that he come in for interrogation on march 4 (Monday). Nevertheless, because the delhi government would be presenting its budget to the assembly later today, the AAP supremo has chosen to forego the summons.
The chief minister reaffirmed that the summonses were "illegal" and stated that he was prepared to respond to inquiries via video conference in his response to the investigation agency. He has requested a date to appear before the Enforcement Directorate that falls after march 12.

Kejriwal ignored the seventh summons from the Enforcement Directorate on february 26. The AAP stated that the case was "pending in court" and will be heard on march 16.
The party requested that the Enforcement Directorate hold off on issuing more summonses in order to await the court's ruling.
BJP leader Harish Khurana responded to the most recent development by questioning why kejriwal was ignoring the Enforcement Directorate's summonses on many occasions.
Kejriwal has ignored the eighth summons, just like he always does. Has he decided when march 12th is auspicious? "Why is he evading the Enforcement Directorate's questioning?" he asked.

The chief minister of delhi has ignored every summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate, referring to them as "illegal". The previous seven summonses were issued on february 26, february 14, february 2, january 18, january 3, december 22, 2023, and november 2, 2023, with the exception of the eighth summons, which was issued on march 2.
After citing a house discussion on a trust resolution, kejriwal was granted permission by a delhi court on february 17 to physically appear before it on march 16 in relation to the Enforcement Directorate's recent charge against him for allegedly missing five summonses in the excise policy issue.
After that, the court scheduled Kejriwal's next in-person appearance for 10 a.m. on march 16.

Following the Enforcement Directorate's february 3 complaint against him for not responding to earlier summonses in the liquor policy matter, kejriwal was called to appear in court on february 7. The AAP chief was "legally bound" to comply, the court declared.
The complaint was submitted in accordance with Section 50 of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and Section 174 of the IPC for non-attendance in response to a public servant's directive.
