K Kavitha to remain in judicial custody till July 3

New Delhi, June 3 (UNI) The Rouse Avenue Court Monday extended the judicial custody of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader Kalvakuntla Kavitha in a money laundering case till July 3.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja extended the custody after Kavitha was produced before the court in pursuance of its earlier order issuing a production warrant against her.

Kavitha appeared in court after the expiry of judicial custody in the money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi Liquor Policy scam.

The court had issued the warrants after taking cognisance of a charge sheet against the BRS leader in the case on May 29.

The court also granted bail to three co-accused persons — Prince, Damodar and Arvind Singh. The three were also charge-sheeted without being arrested during the investigation by the Enforcement Directorate.

Kavitha was arrested by ED on March 15 from her residence in Banjara Hills, Telangana. She is currently an MLC and is the daughter of former Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.

She is accused of being a key actor of the “South Group”, which allegedly connived with the Aam Admi Party members including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and paid kickbacks of Rs 100 crore in exchange for liquor licenses in the national capital.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has also registered a case against her in the alleged scam. It was registered while she was serving remand in the ED’s case. CBI arrested her from Tihar prison on April 11.

Others accused in the Excise Policy scam are Delhi Chief Minister and his former deputy Manish Sisodia.
