CBI arrested K Kavita inside Thihar Jail over Liquor Policy case

Must Read

The Central Bureau of Investigation has detained BRS leader K Kavitha in Tihar Jail on charges of money laundering related to the Delhi liquor policy. The arrest came just days after the investigation agency questioned her in jail, where she is in judicial custody.

Former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter, K Kavitha, has been accused of being a prominent member of the “South Group,” which allegedly paid the ruling AAP in Delhi kickbacks of Rs.100 crore in exchange for a large portion of liquor licenses in the national capital. She was ordered to 14 days in judicial custody last Tuesday.

The Enforcement Directorate nabbed the 46-year-old on March 15 at her Banjara Hills home in Hyderabad.

CBI officers recently questioned Kavitha inside the prison with permission from a special court. The BRS leader was questioned regarding WhatsApp discussions retrieved from co-accused Buchi Babu’s phone and papers relating to a land deal, after which an amount of Rs.100 crore was allegedly paid to the AAP in kickbacks to influence the excise policy for the national capital in favor of a liquor lobby.

The CBI agents went to Tihar Jail on Saturday to examine Kavitha about these parts of the case.

In a petition to the court, Kavitha claimed that the probe by central agencies, which she dubbed a “media trial,” had harmed her reputation and invaded her privacy.

“I am a victim.” My personal and political reputation have been assailed. “My mobile phone is displayed on all television channels, directly invading my privacy,” she stated in a letter delivered in court by her counsel.

“I have cooperated with the agencies and provided all bank account information. “I will hand over all the mobile phones that the ED claims I have destroyed,” the letter stated.
