Jailed BRS Leader K Kavitha Arrested By CBI In Delhi Liquor Policy

In relation to the now-discontinued Delhi liquor policy case, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Thursday detained incarcerated Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC K Kavitha.

Daughter of the late K Chandrasekhar Rao, the chief minister of Telangana, Kavitha is being held in Tihar Jail till April 23. On March 15, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) detained her at her Hyderabad home on suspicion of money laundering.

On Wednesday, the agency requested permission to arrest Kavitha in connection with the case in an application that was submitted at Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court. The BRS leader in the case was detained on Thursday after the court permitted the CBI to do so on Wednesday night. On Friday, the CBI would ask the court to remand her.

Previously, Kavitha claimed that it was a “political case” and claimed that the CBI had taped her statement while she was in jail.

“The statement serves as the sole foundation for this lawsuit. This case is political. In this instance, the opposition parties are being targeted. I gave my statement in jail, and the CBI has already documented it,” she claimed.

Kavitha was interrogated by CBI agents inside the prison lately, with authorization from a special court.

The BRS leader was questioned over documents pertaining to a land purchase in relation to the liquor policy case, as well as WhatsApp conversations that were found on co-accused Buchi Babu’s phone.

According to sources, the CBI had visited Tihar Jail on April 6 to examine Kavitha about these parts of the case.

According to the ED, Kavitha is a prominent figure in the “South Group,” which is accused of giving the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi payments of Rs 100 crore in exchange for a major portion of liquor licences in the capital.

K Kavitha filed a motion at the Rouse Avenue court on Thursday, requesting that the registry notify her attorneys of any applications filed on the CBI’s behalf.

The plea stipulated that Kavitha’s solicitors would be notified if the CBI filed an application about any matter pertaining to Kavitha’s need for her custody to be investigated in the CBI case.

K. Kavitha’s application was scheduled to be heard by the Duty Magistrate today, as courts were closed due to the Eid holiday.

The Public Prosecutor informed the court that he was unaware of Kavitha’s detention by the CBI in connection with the current case.

Additionally, the prosecutor stated that no one who has been accused is to be brought before the court today for remand or any other reason.

Up until 4:55 p.m. on Thursday, the CBI had not submitted any applications in this case.

The court noted that no relief may be given because it lacks any documentation related to the subject at hand. The new hearing time for the case is 10 a.m. on Friday.
