New Delhi, Mar 22 (UNI) The Supreme Court on Friday refused to hear the bail petition of K. Kavitha, MLC of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and daughter of former Telangana CM K Chandrashekhar Rao, and told her to approach the Trial Court for bail.

A bench comprising Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Justice MM Sundresh, and Justice Bela Trivedi, while hearing the petition of K. Kavitha, challenging her arrest by the ED concerning the Delhi Excise Policy case, issued notice to the Directorate of Enforcement (ED).

The Court told Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal, who appeared for legislator K. Kavitha, that the bench was considering petitions to reconsider the Vijay Mandal Chaudhary & Others. vs. Union of India judgment, and Kavitha’s petition can be tagged with that batch, but for bail, she will have to approach the Trial Court.

Kapil Sibal requested the court, “Please don’t tell me to go back to the High Court. Hear it, decide it against me; I do not mind. But see what is happening in our country.” Sibal contended that every statement made against Ms. Kavitha is from an approver; there is not a single piece of evidence. It is contrary to this Court’s order.”

Sibal also cited the example of Hemant Soren and asked what was happening in the trial court. This cannot happen. ”The bench said that it is a practice that this court is following and cannot bypass statutory remedies merely because the politician is involved.
