The federal investigation agency Enforcement Directorate on Friday issued a third summons to Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Admi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal in a money laundering case in connection with the Delhi excise policy scam.

As per media reports, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal has been asked to appear before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on January 3.

Kejriwal skipped two previous summons

On December 2, Kejriwal left for an undisclosed location for a 10-day Vipassana meditation course, officials said.

He left at around 1.30 pm on Wednesday for the pre-scheduled meditation course, they added. The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday questioned the timing of the summons, saying the party's lawyers are studying the notice and "legally correct" steps will be taken.

Party members confirmed that Kejriwal's Vipassana session was "pre-scheduled" and the information was in the public domain.

 "Everyone knows the chief minister is leaving for Vipassana on December 19. He regularly goes for this meditation course. It's a pre-scheduled and pre-announced plan," AAP MP Raghav Chadha had said.

Earlier, Kejriwal was summoned by the ED on November 2 but he skipped the questioning alleging the notice was illegal and politically motivated.
