ED Extends Summons for Telangana CM's Daughter in Delhi Liquor Policy Scam

The Enforcement Directorate on Friday agreed before the Supreme Court to grant 10 days extension on summons issued to K Kavitha, BRS leader and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K C Rao, in connection with the Delhi's Liquor Policy case. 

The agency had issued the summons asking Kavitha to appear before it on Friday. 

Appearing for the ED, Additional Solicitor General S V Raju, submitted before a bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Sudhanshu Dhulia that Kavitha had appeared before the ED twice earlier and if she has any difficulty, the date of summons will be extended.

"If she is busy, we will extend the date by another 10 days," he said. 

The counsel appearing for Kavitha told the bench that she has been summoned for Friday itself.

When the bench fixed the matter for hearing on September 26, her counsel appealed the summons should be deferred till then.

"Do I need to record it or you will do it," Justice Kaul asked Raju.

"We will do it," the ASG responded.

Kavitha challenged the summons by the ED in the case and requested protection from arrest.

The ED had summoned the daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao to its Delhi office on Friday for questioning in the case over her alleged involvement in certain irregularities.

On March 15, the top court had agreed to hear Kavitha's plea.

She had earlier appeared before the ED in March when she was questioned by the agency. The BRS leader has denied all allegations against her.

Delhi's former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, along with a number of accused had already been arrested in the case.

Kavitha had earlier been questioned by the CBI in the case.

It was alleged Kavitha held benami investment in Indospiritis, a liquor firm involved in the scam. ED alleged Arun Ramchandran Pillai represented Kavitha in Indospirits.

The agencies alleged the South lobby, which included Kavitha, bribed AAP government to formulate an excise policy to facilitate the companies to win the bids and to form a cartel and control the retail outlets in Delhi. Kavitha invested money through her benamis and took back the money from the company later after getting the licenses, it was alleged.
