The Enforcement Directorate may arrest Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today. Aam Aadmi Party itself has made this claim. Fearing the arrest of CM Kejriwal, workers have started reaching AAP office. On the other hand, security has been increased outside the residence of Delhi Chief Minister and AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal.

Remember that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has issued three summons to Delhi CM Kejriwal in the liquor scam, but till now Kejriwal has not appeared before the ED. Meanwhile, on Thursday morning, AAP leader Atishi made a post on social media X.

According to the post, Atishi, a minister in the Delhi government, wrote on Wednesday night that he had received news that the Enforcement Directorate was going to raid Arvind Kejriwal's house on Thursday morning. Arrest may also occur. At the same time, security has been increased outside CM Kejriwal's house.

Delhi government minister Saurabh Bhardwaj and Rajya Sabha MP Sandeep Pathak have also claimed on social media platform X that ED may raid CM Kejriwal's house today. After which he can be arrested.
 

 
Earlier yesterday, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal did not turn up even on the third summons of the Enforcement Directorate for questioning in the alleged liquor scam case that took place in Delhi. CM Kejriwal has written a letter to the investigating agency. He gave the reason for not appearing and wrote that he is currently busy in the Rajya Sabha elections. Also said that he is ready to answer any question.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that he is busy in preparations for Rajya Sabha elections and Republic Day. He termed the notice as illegal and said that if a questionnaire related to the matter is sent, he is ready to answer. Kejriwal wrote to the agency, "In this matter you are maintaining undue secrecy and are acting in an opaque and arbitrary manner."

He alleged that the summons had already appeared in the media before reaching him. This raises the question whether the purpose of the summons is to conduct legitimate inquiries or to tarnish my reputation.

Questions raised on ED's intentions

"Your silence forces me to conclude that you are maintaining undue secrecy," he said in response to the summons. The present case is being treated opaquely and arbitrarily.
