Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday skipped the seventh summon issued by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with alleged excise policy scam case.

The AAP sources said that the Chief Minister will not go to ED as the matter is in court and the next hearing is on March 16.

“Instead of sending summons every day, ED should await the court's decision. We won't leave the INDIA alliance,” sources said.

Last week, ED had issued summon to Kejriwal and asked him to appear before the financial probe agency on Monday.

On February 19, Kejriwal had skipped ED’s sixth summon in connection with the alleged excise policy scam.

The financial probe agency's complaint alleged that Kejriwal intentionally did not want to obey the summons and kept on giving “lame excuses.”

"If a high-ranking public functionary like him disobeys the law, it will set a wrong example for the common man i.e. the Aam Aadmi,” the agency said.
