Liquor policy case: CBI summons Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal on 16 April

In a significant development in the Delhi excise policy case, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has been summoned for questioning by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).

The national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has been summoned for questioning. This development comes as former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia remains in judicial custody in the same case.

Sisodia was arrested by the ED and CBI as part of an ongoing investigation into alleged irregularities in the formulation and implementation of GNCTD’s excise policy.

On February 26, 2023, the CBI arrested Sisodia in the liquor policy case. After hours of questioning at Tihar Jail, the ED arrested him on March 9.

Following the arrest of Sameer Mahendru, Managing Director of Delhi’s Jor Bagh-based spirits distributor Indospirit Group, in the case, the ED raided nearly three dozen locations in Delhi and Punjab in October and later arrested him. Early this week, the CBI also filed its first charge sheet in the case.
