ED seizes Kavitha's Mobile Phones:- K Kavitha, a member of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and daughter of former Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, was taken to the Directorate of Enforcement (ED) office in Delhi on Saturday, a few hours after her arrest in connection with a money laundering case related to the Delhi excise policy. The arrest followed a day-long interrogation and a search at her residence in Hyderabad. She is expected to appear before a special court in Delhi today, possibly in the afternoon. During the search, the ED found five mobile phones at K Kavitha's house. A witness stated that the ED presented a search warrant, but Kavitha initially resisted the investigation. However, the search eventually commenced. The operation at K Kavitha's house began on Friday at around 1:45 pm and concluded at approximately 6:45 pm.

In the arrest order, the ED investigation officer stated, "I believe that Smt. Kalvakuntla Kavitha, wife of Mr. D R Anil Kumar, residing at H. No. As provided in section 19, sub section (1) of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (915 of 2003), I, therefore, exercise my authority to apprehend Smt. Kalvakuntla Kavitha at 05.20 pm on 15.03.2024. She has been duly informed of the reasons for her arrest, and a comprehensive document detailing these reasons (spanning 14 pages) has been presented to her.

This action follows nearly two months after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) issued summonses to the 45-year-old BRS MLC. Last year, she was questioned on three separate occasions in relation to this case, and her statement was recorded by the central agency under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA). The BRS leader previously asserted her innocence and accused the BJP of utilizing the ED to gain unauthorized access to Telangana. It is worth noting that Kavitha was also interrogated by the CBI in connection with the money laundering case. The ED initiated their case after taking into account the CBI's First Information Report (FIR).

The investigation revealed that a group called the "South Group" was formed by a cartel. This group included Telangana MLC Kavitha, Sarath Reddy (promoter of Aurobindo Group), Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy (MP, Ongole), his son Raghav Magunta, and others. Pillai, Abhishek Boinpalli, and Butchi Babu were the representatives of the South Group during the investigation conducted by the federal agency.
