The legal team of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has lodged a complaint in the Supreme Court, strongly objecting to the ED affidavit. Kejriwal’s legal team alleges that the affidavit was submitted after the hearing had concluded and just before the Supreme Court was set to deliver its verdict, which they argue violates due legal process. The affidavit was filed without obtaining permission from the Supreme Court.

ED has been investigating the case for 2 years but has not found any evidence. The Chief Minister of the capital was arrested based solely on someone’s statement. All the individuals mentioned by ED in court are close to BJP. ED is taking action against Kejriwal based solely on these statements, indicating that they are operating under BJP’s instructions.
