K Kavitha sent to judicial custody till April 9 by Delhi Court


 A Delhi Court on Tuesday remanded Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha to judicial custody till April 9 in a case of money laundering connected with the alleged Liquor Policy Scam in which Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is also an accused.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja of Rouse Avenue Court, after hearing the arguments from both sides sent K Kavitha to Judicial Custody (JC) Remand till March 23.

Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, was arrested on March 15 by the Enforcement Directorate(ED) from her residence at Banjara Hills in Hyderabad at 5.20 pm.

She was remanded to ED custody until March 23, which was further extended for three days, till March 26.

On Tuesday, ED requested the court that Kavitha be sent to judicial custody.

Special CBI judge Kaveri Baweja of Rouse Avenue Courts passed the order after Kavitha was produced in court on the expiry of her ED remand.

Kavitha had also filed a petition in the Supreme Court challenging ED Summons, but later on March 19, she withdrew the same.

On Monday, the Apex Court issued notice on Kavitha’s plea challenging her arrest and asked the BRS leader to approach the trial court for bail.

ED has alleged that Kavitha is “one of the main conspirators and beneficiaries” of Delhi’s New Liquor Policy scam.

As per the ED, other members involved in the scam are Sarath Reddy, Raghav Magunta, and Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy from the South group. They allegedly conspired with top Aam Aadmi Party leaders and gave them kickbacks to the tune of Rs. 100 crore, in exchange for undue favours in the formulation and implementation of the new excise policy for Delhi.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and AAP MP Sanjay Singh are in custody in connection with the same case.
