Court rejects plea for interim bail to BRS leader K Kavitha

NEW DELHI: A Delhi court on Monday rejected a plea for interim bail to BRS leader K Kavitha in a money laundering case related to the Delhi liquor scam.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja dismissed the plea, noting the stage was not right to enlarge her on interim bail.

Kavitha sought the relief as 16-year-old son has exams and needs his mother's "moral and emotional support".

The ED opposed the plea for bail, claiming Kavitha destroyed evidence and influenced witnesses in the case.

The ED alleged that Kavitha was a part of the South lobby which had paid an illegal gratification of Rs 100 crores in cash to the politicians and public servants in Delhi for manipulating the liquor policy of the Delhi government and she was also a major beneficiary of it.

The agency registered the money laundering case on August 22, 2022 in relation of scheduled offences of the CBI which lodged its case on August 17, 2022 in connection with irregularities committed in framing and implementation of excise policy for the year 2021-22 and payment of bribe.

Kavitha, 46, was arrested from her Banjara Hills residence on March 15 amid protests by BRS supporters.

She was then sent to seven-day ED custody the next day. Her custodial interrogation was later extended by three days. She is currently under judicial custody.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia are also under the judicial custody in the matter.
