ED wants AAP’s Lok Sabha election strategy details from CM Kejriwal’s phone: Delhi minister Atishi | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: AAP leader and Delhi education minister Atishi, on Friday, said that the Enforcement Directorate is working as BJP’s political weapon and they want to get details of AAP’s Lok Sabha election strategy by accessing Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s phone.
Addressing a press conference, Atishi alleged, “Yesterday in Rouse Avenue court during the hearing of Arvind Kejriwal‘s remand, ED’s counsel ASG SV Raju said that they need to keep (Delhi CM) Arvind Kejriwal in custody for a few more days because he hasn’t shared his mobile password.This is the same ED that a few days ago said that the phone which was with Arvind Kejriwal during the implementation of excise policy in 2021, hasn’t been found.”
“I want to ask ED why they want to check his recent phone. What do they want to know? What will they find in it? They will find the Lok Sabha strategies, the conversation with the INDIA alliance, and the entire campaign plan,” she added.
This remarks came after the Rouse Avenue court remanded Kejriwal to ED custody till April 1 in the money laundering case related to the alleged liquor policy scam case. He was arrested on the night of March 21.
Kejriwal was produced in court on Thursday the expiry of his six days of ED custody. The Delhi high court had declined any interim relief to Kejriwal and only issued notice on his plea challenging the arrest and remand.
The probe agency, which got Kejriwal’s custody for 4 more days, said the AAP chief needs to be confronted with some people linked with excise policy case. It told the court that Delhi chief minister was giving evasive replies and was not disclosing passwords of his digital devices.
Arguing his case in the court, Kejriwal said, “I was arrested, but no court has proven me guilty yet. CBI filed 31,000 pages and ED has filed 25,000 pages related to this matter. Even if you read them together, I would like to ask why have I been arrested? My name came to light only in four statements of four people.”
“Are these four statements made by different people sufficient to arrest a sitting chief minister?” he asked. Kejriwal referred to the statements of C Arvind, Raghav Magunta and his father and Sharath Reddy.
“It’s being alleged that 100 crore was in liquor scam. Justice Sanjiv Khanna said that the money trail is not yet traced,” Kejriwal said and added, “The real liquor scam begins post the ED investigation. The motive of the ED is to crush the Aam Aadmi Party.”
The Delhi chief minister then raised the issue of electoral bonds in the court and claimed the approver in the case had donated Rs 55 crore to the BJP.
