The Supreme Court on Tuesday began hearing on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s plea challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in a money laundering case related to the Delhi Excise Policy. A bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna and Justice Dipankar Dutta was given a note by Additional Solicitor General SV Raju, appearing for the ED, in which he opposed Kejriwal’s contention that the investigating agency had suppressed the statements of government witnesses.
