Kavitha gets one more shock in Delhi Liquor Scam:- K Kavitha, a leader of BRS, has been placed in the custody of the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) until April 15 for her alleged involvement in a liquor policy scam. Following her arrest by the probe agency, Kavitha appeared in court where Special Judge Kaveri Baweja of Rouse Avenue Courts made the decision. According to the CBI, Kavitha is considered a significant participant in the liquor policy case and is withholding information known only to her. The agency therefore requested a 5-day custody.

"In previous proceedings, Kavitha was examined, but based on the evidence discovered during the investigation...the role of her statements revealed that she is one of the main conspirators in the excise policy. She did not cooperate with the investigation, providing unjustifiable reasons for her absence...During questioning, she failed to give satisfactory explanations regarding her involvement...It is necessary to confront her with evidence to uncover the broader conspiracy related to the liquor policy," explained the counsel for the CBI. Kavitha was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the evening of March 15 in connection with a money laundering case related to the excise policy. At the time of her arrest by the CBI, she was already in judicial custody.

Kavitha was brought in for questioning while in jail. The CBI stated in their application that Sarath Reddy had joined the alcohol business in Delhi with Kavitha's assurance of having connections in the Delhi Government and offering assistance. According to the CBI, Kavitha had asked Sarath Chandra Reddy to pay Rs. 25 crores for the 05 retail zones he was allotted, claiming that she had already paid Rs. 100 crores upfront to the Aam Aadmi Party through Vijay Nair. The CBI believed that Kavitha's examination was necessary to explore her involvement in the criminal conspiracy related to the creation and implementation of the Excise Policy. Senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhary, representing the BRS leader, argued that the arrest was illegal and unconstitutional. He questioned the timing of the arrest, pointing out that the evidence presented by the CBI was from at least a year ago.
