Medical Team Leaves Enforcement Directorate Office After Conducting Check-Up on Delhi Chief Minister

On Saturday morning, a medical team departed from the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in Delhi.

Late on Friday, the medical team had arrived at the ED’s office to carry out a medical examination of the Delhi Chief Minister.

Earlier, Atishi, a minister from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), expressed apprehension regarding the safety and security of the Delhi Chief Minister on Friday.

“Atishi posted on X on Friday, “For the first time in the country, a sitting Chief Minister has been arrested. Arvind Kejriwal has Z+ security cover. Now he is in the custody of the ED of the Central Government. We are concerned about his safety and security.”

Meanwhile, Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court on Friday remanded CM Kejriwal to ED custody for seven days, until March 28, in connection with the money laundering case related to the alleged excise policy scam.

A team from the Enforcement Directorate had visited Kejriwal’s residence on Thursday to question him regarding the liquor policy case.

Subsequently, the Enforcement Directorate escorted him to the agency’s headquarters.

AAP workers and leaders rallied behind Kejriwal following his arrest, while leaders from the INDIA bloc also expressed their support for the AAP leader. BJP leaders backed the ED’s actions against the Delhi Chief Minister, underscoring the importance of “truth prevailing.”

The case revolves around alleged irregularities and money laundering in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi excise policy 2022, which was subsequently annulled.

Arvind Kejriwal’s lawyer, Madan Lal, informed reporters, “ED was seeking a 10-day remand. They argued that to trace the money trail, custodial interrogation was necessary. Taking all factors into account, the judge granted a 6-day custodial remand. He will be produced again on March 28. ED contended that the funds utilized for the Goa elections were unlawfully obtained. They claimed to possess statements from certain witnesses supporting this assertion.”
