New Delhi:

The ED has summoned Amit Palekar, the head of Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) Goa unit, and some other party leaders from the coastal state for questioning in a money laundering case related to Delhi’s excise policy on March 28, official sources said Wednesday. .

The AAP leaders have been asked to depose at the Enforcement Directorate (ED) office in Goa’s Panjim on Thursday, the sources said.

Amit Palekar, the AAP’s first ministerial face during the February 2022 Goa Assembly polls, had recently said there was no evidence of illegal money being sent to the state and asserted that he and his party colleagues were ready to investigate any investigation under eyes to see. .

The ED arrested AAP national president and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on March 21 in the case.

The agency has submitted in its chargesheet that the AAP in its poll campaign in Goa used ‘proceeds of crime’ to the tune of around Rs 45 crore, coming from the Rs 100 crore ‘bribes’ pumped in by the ‘South Group’ which reportedly implicated Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha.

Arvind Kejriwal will be produced before a Delhi court by the ED on Thursday at the end of his remand period.
