Fresh summons for Kavitha in Delhi Liquor Scam Case:- K Kavitha, the daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, has been summoned by the CBI in relation to the Delhi excise policy scam case. The CBI has requested her presence at their headquarters on Monday for questioning. Previously, in December 2022, the agency had recorded her statement at her residence in Hyderabad. The Enforcement Directorate has alleged that Vijay Nair, one of the accused in the case, received kickbacks worth at least Rs 100 crore from a group known as South Group, which is controlled by Sarath Reddy, Kavitha, and Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, on behalf of AAP leaders.

The CBI, which has already filed three charge sheets against several accused, including former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, claims that kickbacks ranging from Rs 90-100 crore were paid in advance to certain politicians of the ruling AAP in Delhi and other public servants. These payments were allegedly made by individuals in the liquor business from South India, through co-accused Nair, Abhishek Boinpally, and Dinesh Arora.

According to the CBI, members of the "South lobby" exploited various methods such as issuing excessive credit notes, making bank transfers, and leaving outstanding amounts in controlled company accounts to obtain L-1 licences. The CBI has accused a cartel consisting of liquor manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers of violating policy provisions and acting against the policy's principles. Each conspirator allegedly played an active part in attaining the unlawful goals of this criminal plot. The CBI claims that this resulted in significant financial losses for the government and unjust financial gains for the public servants and other individuals involved in the conspiracy.
