On June 3, the Delhi Court had extended her judicial custody till July 3. Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR), was arrested by the ED on March 15 from her residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

Another setback has come for Bharatiya Rashtra Samithi leader K Kavitha. The Delhi High Court on Monday rejected her bail plea in the excise policy case filed by the CBI and the money laundering case filed by the ED. The High Court’s decision came two days before her judicial custody ends. Earlier on June 3, the Delhi Court had extended her judicial custody till July 3. K Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR), was arrested by the ED on March 15 from her residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

The ED has accused her of being a key member of the ‘South Group’, which is accused of paying an alleged bribe of Rs 100 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in exchange for a large share of liquor licences in the national capital. The licences were issued as part of the now-expired Delhi Excise Policy for 2021-22. The agency had earlier said that Kavita was “one of the main conspirators and beneficiaries of the Delhi Excise Policy scam”. The excise case relates to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi government’s Excise Policy for 2021-22.

On May 29, the Rouse Avenue Court took cognizance of the Enforcement Directorate’s supplementary prosecution complaint (chargesheet) filed against Kavita and others in connection with the case. The chargesheet was filed against Kavita and other accused Chanpreet Singh, Damodar, Prince Singh and Arvind Kumar. Later, the CBI filed a supplementary chargesheet against them and other accused on June 7. The case relates to alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22. It is alleged that the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22 talks about granting licenses to liquor traders.
