CBI summons K Kavitha in Delhi liquor policy case for second time

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 21 Feb 2024, 10:55 pm

New Delhi/IBNS: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has summoned Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavitha, daughter of Telangana's former Chief Minister KCR, for the second time in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case, media reports said.

She was earlier questioned by the CBI in December.

It is alleged that the now-scrapped Delhi government's liquor policy for 2021-22 to grant licences to liquor traders allowed cartelisation and favoured certain dealers who had allegedly paid bribes for it.

After it was scrapped, the Delhi lieutenant governor recommended a CBI probe, following which the Enforcement Directorate (ED) registered a case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The ED  has alleged that one of the accused in the case Vijay Nair received kickbacks to the tune of at least Rs. 100 crore from a group called South Group (controlled by Sarath Reddy, Kavitha and Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy) on behalf of leaders of the AAP.
