Arvind Kejriwal News LIVE Updates: Delhi High Court begins hearing Delhi CM’s plea against Enforcement Directorate (ED) judgment.

The matter is being heard by a bench headed by Justice Swarna Kanta Sharma of the Delhi High Court.

In opposition to the petition filed by the AAP leader challenging his arrest by the agency in the money laundering case related to the “scam,” the Enforcement Directorate (ED) asserted that the political party, which was identified as the “major beneficiary” of the proceeds of the crime, had allegedly committed the offense through Kejriwal.

The AAP has committed the offense of money laundering through Kejriwal and the offenses thus are covered by section 70, PMLA 2002, said the response.
