New Delhi, July 10

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal “directly used” part of the alleged Rs 100 crore generated from the “kickbacks” of the Delhi excise policy “scam” by staying in a luxury hotel in Goa, the ED has claimed in its chargesheet filed against the AAP supremo.

The probe agency also said the GoM (Group of Ministers) constituted by his government in this context was a “sham”. A special Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) court on Tuesday took cognisance of the prosecution complaint, filed on May 17, and issued a production warrant for the jailed AAP leader for July 12.

The 55-year-old politician and the AAP have been named as accused in this seventh supplementary chargesheet filed in the case. The AAP responded to the ED chargesheet saying the BJP-led government at the Centre was hatching a “big conspiracy” against the party and that the political outfit was being finished off.
