Delhi excise policy case: ED summons BRS MLC Kavitha on Mar 9

IBNS | @indiablooms | 08 Mar 2023, 01:28 pm

Hyderabad/UNI: The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday summoned K Kavitha, Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao for questioning on Thursday in the Delhi Excise Policy case.

The CBI, which is also probing the case, had questioned her in Hyderabad on December 11.

The ED has issued summons to Kavitha at a time when she is preparing to stage a peaceful hunger strike in New Delhi on March 10 demanding the passage of the Women's Reservation bill in Parliament.

On Tuesday, the agency took into custody Hyderabad-based liquor businessman, Arun Ramchandra Pillai, who allegedly represented the interests of BRS MLC. During the questioning, ED is expected to confront her with the purported disclosures made by him.

Reacting to the summons, Kavitha in a statement said, "As a law-abiding citizen, I will fully cooperate with the investigation agencies.

"However, due to the Dharna and prefixed appointments I'll seek legal opinions on the date of attending it."
