The Enforcement Directorate (ED) will name Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as an accused in a fresh chargesheet in the money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam. This is the first time that any national party will be named as an accused in a chargesheet filed by any agency in a corruption case.

The ED has claimed it has established a money trail linked to Kejriwal. Previously, the ED had claimed before a Delhi court that Rs 45 crore of the kickbacks received by AAP was used by the party during its campaign in the 2022 Goa Assembly elections.

The agency is likely to file the chargesheet after the Supreme Court's hearing on interim bail for Kejriwal on Friday. If the hearing continues through the day, then the chargesheet will be filed tomorrow, sources said.
