Sanjay Singh first AAP leader to get bail in Delhi Excise Policy case; what is the status of other accused?

After arresting the Delhi CM, the ED had told the trial court that Kejriwal was “intrinsically involved in the entire conspiracy” and also had a role in utilisation of “the proceeds of crime”.

Out of three statements connecting Kejriwal to the alleged kickbacks from South Group, two are of accused who have turned approvers and the other is of Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, the Lok Sabha candidate of BJP-ally Telugu Desam Party.

The other allegation against Kejriwal is with regard to utilisation of funds for the Goa elections by AAP.

The ED has claimed that a “part of the proceeds of crime to the tune of cash of Rs 45 Cr approx” was utilised in the election campaign and thus AAP has committed the offence of money laundering “through” Kejriwal.

Arvind Kejriwal was at the time of offences under PMLA, incharge of and responsible for the said “company” i.e. AAP for conduct of business of AAP. Therefore, not only the AAP but Sh Arvind Kejriwal shall be deemed to be guilty of offences punishable u/s 4 ofPMLA and shall be liable to be prosecuted and punished as provided u/s 70 of PMLA,” the ED told Delhi High Court today in response to the petition challenging Kejriwal’s arrest.

Besides looking into Kejriwal’s digital devices, the ED is also going through his financial documents and details of movable and immovable properties.

Kejriwal is to be produced before the Special Judge Kaveri Baweja on April 15.
