Delhi Chief Minister and AAP Convener Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by Enforcement Directorate (ED) under the PMLA Act (Prevention of Money Laundering Act). He was arrested in connection with a money laundering case related to liquor scam. What is PMLA Act and why has the Delhi CM been arrested? Let's explore.

 

Understanding the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA): The Prevention of Money Laundering Act was enacted in the year 2022 and later it was implemented on 1st July 2005. The main objective of this act was to mainly prevent money laundering. This act further enables the government or public authority to confiscate the property that has been earned from illegally gained proceeds. In 2018, the government made getting bail even tougher under section 45 of the PMLA. The court must believe the accused is innocent and won't commit more crimes while on bail.

 

Why is getting bail under the PMLA so hard?

The section 45 of the PMLA sets tough rules for bail. All crimes under this law are considered serious and non-bailable offence. This means those arrested or booked under PMLA must prove their innocence in court. Mostly, it is difficult for people charged with this act too get bail. Former Delhi ministers Manish Sisodia and Satyendar Jain, along with AAP leader Sanjay Singh, are currently in jail under the PMLA.

 

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal's Arrest:

Arvind Kejriwal's arrest has raised eyebrows. Despite being sent to 6-day custody, he refuses to resign as Delhi Chief Minister. But why has he been arrested, and what does this mean for his political career?

 

What are the Charges Against Kejriwal?

1. ASV Raju, representing the ED, calls Kejriwal the "key conspirator" in the Delhi liquor scam. But is there solid proof?

2. The ED accuses Kejriwal of shaping the Delhi Excise Policy directly. Is this a crime or just part of his job?

3. Kejriwal is alleged to have handled crime money worth over Rs 600 crore. Is there enough evidence against him?

4. Did the AAP receive funds from crime money for their election campaign in Goa?

5. Were kickbacks demanded by Kejriwal in exchange for favors?

6. Was Kejriwal's aide, Vijay Nair, just a middleman, or is there more to it?

7. Did Kejriwal abuse his power to watch ED officials? What's the evidence?
