Given the appearance of Arvind Kejriwal, the security arrangements of the court premises were increased. Delhi Traffic Police had diverted many routes around the court. Along with this, the traffic police advised people on those routes to arrive on time.

Aam Aadmi Party’s legal head, Sanjeev Nasiar, said the court summoned Arvind Kejriwal. Last time, the CM appeared through video conferencing, after which he was again instructed to appear, and he said he would appear physically. Kejriwal appeared today and got bail.

Sanjeev Nasiar said that our stand regarding the summons of ED is clear: the summons are not according to the law and are illegal. The court will now decide this. We have full faith in the court. Whatever decision the court takes, our decision will be accordingly.

On Thursday, the ED opposed Arvind Kejriwal’s plea against the summons issued in court, saying that the Delhi CM had assured the court that he would appear on March 16. Kejriwal’s petition against two separate complaints filed by the ED was heard in Rouse Avenue Court. ED alleged that despite several Delhi Excise Policy case summons, they have not appeared before the investigating agency. Responding to the arguments of Kejriwal’s lawyer that the complaint before the court was not filed by the public servant concerned and it is illegal.

CM Kejriwal Had Challenged The Summons

Arvind Kejriwal had challenged the summons issued to him by the Rouse Avenue Court in the Sessions Court in the Delhi Excise Policy case. Rouse Avenue Court had summoned Arvind Kejriwal to appear in the court on March 16. In the petition, Kejriwal said that he should be exempted from appearing on March 16 and that his lawyer should be allowed to represent him. ED had opposed this petition of Kejriwal.
