Kavitha Withdraws From Supreme Court Her Plea Against ED Summons:- K Kavitha, a prominent leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), has decided to withdraw her plea challenging the summons issued by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Delhi excise scam case. The daughter of former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, Kavitha was taken into custody by the ED on March 15 and was kept in their custody until March 23. As a result, her plea against the summons has become unnecessary. The ED had previously accused Kavitha of colluding with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and providing them with Rs 100 crore in order to gain advantages under the now-defunct Delhi excise policy. Kavitha had been questioned three times by the ED last year in relation to this case and was summoned again this year, but she refused to appear, claiming protection from coercive action granted by the Supreme Court.

The ED has described Kavitha as a key conspirator and one of the main culprits in the Delhi excise policy scam, alleging that she and her associates were involved in recovering the proceeds of the crime that had been paid in advance to the AAP in order to generate profits. In the meantime, Kavitha has claimed that the government was "exploiting" the ED because the BJP could not find a "secret way in" to Telangana. Her appeal against the arrest by the ED is still awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court. The AAP has accused the BJP of employing the ED and CBI as their "thugs" to eliminate their political adversaries.
