Enforcement Directorate summons Delhi minister Kailash Gahlot in liquor policy case: Report

49-year-old Kailash Gehlot is the AAP MLA from Delhi's Najafgarh.

New Delhi: Days after chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's arrest, the Enforcement Directorate has summoned Delhi minister and AAP leader Kailash Gahlot for questioning in connection with a money-laundering probe linked to the liquor policy case. He has been summoned for the first time.

The agency asked Kailash Gahlot to appear before it today, reported PTI.

49-year-old Kailash Gehlot is the AAP MLA from Delhi's Najafgarh. He is the minister for transport, home and law in the Delhi government.

Sources told PTI that Kailash Gahlot has been asked to appear for questioning in the case and get his statement recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

AAP leaders Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh and Arvind Kejriwal are in jail over similar charges in the case.

The Enforcement Directorate arrested Kejriwal on March 21, hours after the Delhi high court refused to protect him from arrest over the excise policy.

The action was taken after he ignored nine summonses sent by the Enforcement Directorate.

"I am named by 4 witnesses in excise policy case, are 4 statements enough to arrest a sitting CM," he told the court.
