Arvind Kejriwal Summoned by Delhi Court: Faces Allegations under IPC 174

Delhi’s Chief Minister and leader of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Arvind Kejriwal, is embroiled in another legal controversy as the court has summoned him under section IPC 174. This implies that Kejriwal faces the risk of jail time for contempt of court if he disregards the summons.

The court has initiated a new case against Kejriwal under IPC 174, accusing him of instigation or involvement in conspiracy. Additionally, as per information provided by the National President of the Indian Bar Association, Ad. Nilesh Ojha, Kejriwal could also face charges under IPC sections 109 and 120(B).

Amidst this controversy, there are allegations that Kejriwal has not properly managed media coverage of this issue. Reports suggest that while Kejriwal has been summoned, the allegation under IPC 174 has not been adequately highlighted, overshadowing the seriousness of the situation.

In this case, despite repeated summons from the Enforcement Directorate (ED), Kejriwal has been avoiding appearing before them out of fear of arrest and has been trying to mislead by only sending written communications.

Non-compliance with ED summons could lead to one month of imprisonment under IPC 174. As per legal provisions, the ED has filed two cases against Kejriwal in Delhi’s court. In one case, the judge, considering Kejriwal as the primary suspect under IPC 174, has issued summons under CrPC section 204.

According to section 63(4) of the PMLA Act, there is a clear provision for action against those who disregard ED summons under IPC 174, which includes a provision of one month’s imprisonment.

Considering the violation of law, the court has summoned Kejriwal under IPC 174, making him an accused. Now, Kejriwal faces significant challenges.

It is a matter of concern that Arvind Kejriwal, instead of either legally challenging the ED summons in the High Court or complying, has chosen to disregard them and made misleading statements. He and his spokesperson, Atishi Marlena, have claimed that the summons are unlawful and have decided not to appear before the ED.

Given their unlawful behavior, the court has made them accused under IPC 174 by issuing summons. Now, Kejriwal’s troubles have escalated.

Arvind Kejriwal could be accused under IPC 174 for instigation or involvement in conspiracy, as per the information provided by the National President of the Indian Bar Association, Ad. Nilesh Ojha.

It’s disappointing that Arvind Kejriwal has not allowed proper media coverage of this news. Only reports stating that Kejriwal has been summoned are circulating, but the fact that he has been summoned under IPC 174 has been suppressed.
