Excise policy case: Arrested BRS leader K Kavitha flown to Delhi, produced in court

New Delhi/IBNS: Arrested Bharat Rashtriya Samithi (BRS) leader K Kavita was flown to Delhi and produced at Rouse Avenue District Court after her dramatic arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the excise policy case centred on the national capital, media reports said.

Kavitha, an MLC and the daughter of BRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao, was at midnight taken to ED office where she underwent medical tests after landing in Delhi.

The ED is seeking custodial interrogation of the leader, who has said she will fight it out.

The ED carried out raids along with the IT team at her residence during the day as part of the probe in the case before taking Kavitha into custody.

The agency is probing the alleged liquor scam committed by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi.

The liquor policy was scrapped and a CBI probe commenced, following which the ED booked a case against the same accused under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Kavitha’s involvement in the case came to light after the ED arrested Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Ramchandran Pillai on March 9 last year.

The ED said Pillai had confessed to representing Kavitha’s interests in the excise policy case.

Kavitha earlier appeared before the ED in Delhi and surrendered her phones to the authorities.

The agency is likely to shift her to Delhi this evening for further questioning.
