The Enforcement Directorate has summoned the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Goa unit chief, Amit Palekar and some other party leaders from the state for questioning on March 28 in connection to a money-laundering case linked to the Delhi excise policy.

The AAP’s chief ministerial face during the February 2022 Goa Assembly polls, Palekar had recently said there was no evidence to prove that any illicit money was sent to the state.

He further asserted that he and his party colleagues were ready to face any inquiry.

On March 21, the ED arrested AAP national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the case.

The agency has claimed in its chargesheet that the AAP used “proceeds of crime” to the tune of about Rs 45 crore in its Goa poll campaign, from the Rs 100 crore “bribe” that was pumped in by the “South Group” that allegedly involved Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha. Kejriwal will be produced before a Delhi court by the ED at the end of his remand period on Thursday.
