Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal, for the sixth time, skipped the Enforcement Directorate’s summon asking him to appear before it for enquiry in connection with the Delhi excise policy case.

AAP said that the federal agency’s summons are “illegal”, adding that the matter of their “validity” is in the Court now. “Instead of sending repeated summons, the ED should wait for the Court’s verdict,” the Kejriwal-led party said.

Earlier on Saturday, Kejriwal told a court that he wanted to appear before it in connection with an application moved by the ED in the excise policy, but couldn’t do so because of the budget session and floor test.

“I wanted to come to court but this floor test came up suddenly. Our budget session is till the first week of March. You can give me a date for after that and I will appear,” said Kejriwal who appeared before the Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Divya Malhotra via video conferencing.

The court accepted the Delhi chief minister’s request and posted the next hearing for March 16.
