Kejriwal’s problems are going to increase further in Delhi Liquor scam, ED will file first chargesheet by making him ‘kingpin’

Creative Common

Kejriwal did not get any relief from the Supreme Court on Tuesday, as the bench of Justice Khanna and Justice Dipankar Dutta rose without passing an order granting him interim bail to campaign in the Lok Sabha elections. The bench had said that it does not want Kejriwal to perform his official duties if he is released on interim bail, as it would lead to conflict of interest.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is expected to file its first charge sheet against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering case related to the now-defunct liquor policy. This will be the first time that Kejriwal will be made an accused in this case. This move by ED will coincide with the hearing in the Supreme Court on Friday on Kejriwal’s interim bail in the liquor policy case. In the charge sheet, ED will describe Kejriwal as the ‘kingpin’ and main conspirator in the liquor policy case. The investigating agency has claimed that it has established a money trail linked to Kejriwal. On Wednesday, Justice Sanjiv Khanna, who headed the Supreme Court bench, asked Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the ED, to be ready to present his arguments on Friday. We will pronounce the interim order (on interim bail) on Friday. The main case challenging the arrest will also be heard on the same day, Justice Khanna said.
