ED Arrest Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: A 12-member team of the Enforcement Directorate reached Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's official residence with a search warrant in the excise policy case. The Delhi Chief Minister has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate.  Kejriwal has become the first sitting chief minister to be arrested in the history of Independent India and his party has said he will continue to hold the post. 

The Enforcement Directorate's action comes hours after the Delhi High Court refused to grant protection from arrest to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the liquor policy case. The Delhi Chief Minister had challenged the ED summons to him for questioning over alleged money.

He repeatedly refused to appear before the ED, calling the summons by the central agency illegal.
