The court issued production warrants to Kavitha and Chanpreet Singh, who are currently in judicial custody, and issued summons to Arvind Singh, Sharma and Kumar, who were chargesheeted without arrest in the case.

The federal probe agency had filed its sixth supplementary chargesheet on May 10.

Kavitha, 46, was initially apprehended by ED on March 15 in the money laundering case and was sent to judicial custody on March 26. ED has also referred to her as a key person in irregularities surrounding the excise policy. She was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on April 11, a few days after she was quizzed by them in Tihar jail.

She is one of the four high profile arrests made in the case including Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi’s former deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) parliamentarian Sanjay Singh.

The court had also dismissed a bail application moved by her citing that prima facie her role appears to be that of a key conspirator in the entire conspiracy. She had also approached the Delhi high court seeking bail where the order on her bail application has been reserved.
