BRS MLC Kavitha interrogated in Delhi Excise Policy case
Hyderabad: K Kavitha, daughter of Telangana's Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, has been interrogated for more than 10 hours on Tuesday regarding her involvement in the Delhi excise policy case. The Enforcement Directorate alleges that the South Group, in which Kavitha was a member, paid bribes of Rs 100 crore to AAP functionaries.
Tuesday marked her third day of questioning by the ED, during which she was asked to produce all mobile phones used by her in the past year. Kavitha wrote to ED Assistant Directorate citing she is submitting her mobile phones. Kavitha is expected to be called for questioning again, but no further summons have been issued.
The agency alleges that she had changed almost a dozen handsets to destroy evidence of call records and messages exchanged with other accused in the liquor scam. ED officials questioned Kavitha for 30 hours and aired 30 questions to her. Tension escalated among the party workers after heavy forces deployed at the ED office amid the rumours that Kavitha may be arrested in the case. However, at 9:40 PM, Kavitha stepped out of ED office greeting her followers.
Kavitha had evaded a couple of summonses issued by the agency before the three days of questioning, which is cited as evidence under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act to make a case for detention against an accused. The ED has not yet issued any next summons for Kavitha.
