NEW DELHI: The noose is tightening for Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in the Delhi excise policy scam case. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has reached Arvind Kejriwal's residence in Delhi. The move comes after the Delhi High Court refused to grant Kejriwal any protection from coercive action in the case. The explanation given by ED is that they arrived at the CM's residence to issue a summons.

A team of eight officials has reached Kejriwal's house. According to sources, the team may take steps, including interrogation. Meanwhile, there is no confirmation of whether Kejriwal is present at the residence.

The Enforcement Directorate had sent notices to Kejriwal nine times in the Delhi excise policy case. However, Kejriwal approached the court pointing out that all these were illegal. Earlier, the court had said that the Delhi Chief Minister should not be arrested in the case. The court issued the order after considering Kejriwal's plea that he should not be arrested if he appeared for questioning.

But when the case reached the High Court, it refused to grant any protection to Kejriwal. It is reported that the ED team has a warrant to conduct the inspection.
