Court Allows CBI to Interrogate Kavitha in Jail

Social Share

NEW DELHI, Apr 5: A New Delhi court on Friday allowed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to interrogate the Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader K Kavitha in Tihar jail. She is currently in the judicial custody following her arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case linked to the alleged Delhi liquor policy scam.

The order was passed on the plea filed by the CBI seeking the court’s permission to interrogate Ms Kavitha in judicial custody. Ms Kavitha had urged the court on Thursday for enlarging her on interim bail on account of her 16-year-old son’s exams for which he needed his mother’s “moral and emotional support.” Special Judge for ED and CBI cases Kaveri Baweja permitted the agency to interrogate Kavitha.

Ms Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana Chief Ministerr K Chandrashekar Rao, has been accused of being a key member of the “South Group,” which allegedly paid the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi kickbacks of Rs 100 crore in return for a big share of liquor licences in the national capital. She was sent to 14-day judicial custody last Tuesday. The ED had arrested Kavitha, 46, from her Banjara Hills residence in Hyderabad on March 15.
