K Kavitha_LegallySpeaking

The Delhi High Court on Friday sought the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) response on the bail plea of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader Kalvakuntla Kavitha in a money laundering case linked to the alleged excise policy scam.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma has scheduled the matter for further hearing on May 24, 2024.

Trial Court’s Dismissal

The BRS leader challenged the Rouse Avenue Court’s May 6 ruling, which dismissed her bail plea in the money laundering case. The trial court also denied bail plea in the corruption case filed by the CBI related to the scam.

The purported scam involves alleged corruption and money laundering in the formulation and execution of the Delhi Government’s excise policy for 2021-22, which was subsequently annulled.

Current Status

Kavitha is currently in judicial custody in both cases filed by the CBI and the ED, respectively.

The investigative agency apprehended K Kavitha (46) from her residence in Banjara hills, Hyderabad, on March 15.

The CBI arrested the BRS leader while she was already under judicial custody in the Enforcement Directorate case.
