Arvind Kejriwal has labeled big allegations on ED in the PMLA court stating that the statements of the witnesses have been molded under the influence of ED against him. However, he also added that they treated him well during interrogation.

On the contrary, the ASG said in the court that the chief minister was not cooperating with pieces of evidence and not answering many important questions.
