The Directorate of Enforcement (ED) on Friday filed an affidavit before Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court opposed Arvind Kejriwal’s regular bail plea. ED in its written response said that the applicant (Kejriwal) is involved in the commission of grave economic offences.

The ED further stated that there is ample evidence on record to link the applicant to the commission of the offence of money laundering, and his release on bail would adversely affect further investigation to unearth the deep-rooted multi-layered conspiracy, the ED said.

Meanwhile, the court on Friday deferred the arguments for June 14, after noting that ED had served the reply copy to Arvind Kejriwal’s lawyer just at 1 pm.

Recently, the same court dismissed the interim bail plea moved by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seeking seven days bail citing medical reasons, in the Excise Policy money laundering case.

The matter relates to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and execution of the Delhi government’s now-scrapped excise policy for 2021-22.
