ED CM Kejriwal Phone : ED asks Apple for access to CM Kejriwal Phone

ED CM Kejriwal Phone : Delhi CM Kejriwal was recently arrested in a case related to the alleged liquor scam and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is investigating it. Kejriwal’s personal iPhone was expected to provide information related to this case but California tech brand Apple has refused to help ED in unlocking it.

Media reports have claimed that Apple did not listen to ED and did not unlock Kejriwal’s iPhone. Actually, Apple rejected the demand of ED citing the privacy of its users and said that the company will not give the iPhone unlocked. However, it is not just that and Apple has a dedicated team for such matters.

Dedicated team for legal matters

Apple has a team in its legal department, which can respond to the government’s request. Apple claims that this team takes action on emergency requests received from all over the world 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In such a situation, if ED or related agencies need help from Apple, then they will have to seek help through official channels and following legal guidelines.

Apple has written on its official website that it publishes legal process guidelines for governments on its behalf and the company also shares transparency reports twice a year. In this report, it is told which governments sought what kind of help from Apple and what action was taken by Apple on it. It is clear that in such cases Apple can flatly refuse.

Apple’s focus remains on privacy

Apple has always claimed to provide excellent privacy to its users with its devices. Apart from this, Apple’s privacy mechanism works in such a way that the organization does not have any record of the users’ passcodes. Similarly, Apple also does not have any process to unlock the iPhone without the user’s consent.

According to the company, even Apple itself or any of its employees cannot unlock the iPhone or other Apple devices without the user’s permission or consent. Many such cases have come to light, when Apple has refused to unlock the iPhone citing this policy even in serious cases.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The court has now sent Arvind Kejriwal to judicial custody. Meanwhile, ED has asked for some specific information from iPhone manufacturer Apple.

The ED has no electronic evidence against Chief Minister Kejriwal in the form of his personal computer or desktop, but four of his mobile phones have been seized. On the night of his arrest on March 21, around Rs 70,000 was found in his residence but it was kept there by the ED. Sources said that the Chief Minister has switched off his iPhone and has not even shared his password.

Senior officials associated with the case told The Indian Express that the Chief Minister had said during questioning that access to his telephone data and chats would give the ED information about AAP’s ‘poll strategy’ and alliances.

The ED is believed to have officially approached Apple, the phone’s manufacturers, to gain access to the CM’s iPhone but was told that a password was required to access any data. The Chief Minister has told the ED that this phone has been with him for almost a year and the phone which he was using while drafting the liquor policy in 2020-2021, is no longer with him.

When Kejriwal was in ED custody, he was interrogated for 5 hours daily. But now he will remain in Tihar Jail. Meanwhile, Arvind Kejriwal has demanded 3 books to be read in jail.

A top official said the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has registered a predicate offense in the case. According to ED remand, CM Kejriwal has been accused of money laundering and illegally taking Rs 100 crore through the new liquor policy.

Of this, Rs 45 crore was reportedly used for AAP’s 2021-22 election campaign in Goa. During his custody, CM Kejriwal was also made to confront jailed Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia’s former PS C Arvind.
