Delhi Court extends the ED Custody of Kavitha

Delhi Court extends the ED Custody of Kavitha:- In connection with the Delhi Liquor Policy case, a Delhi court has extended the custody of K Kavitha, a legislator from the Bharat Rashtriya Samithi (BRS), until March 26. During the court proceedings, Kavitha was granted permission to meet her two sons and other family members in the courtroom. Expressing her views to the media after leaving the courtroom, Kavitha stated that it is inappropriate to make numerous political arrests during the elections and called for the Election Commission of India (ECI) to intervene and protect democracy in the country. Kavitha was brought to the Rouse Avenue Court of Delhi on Saturday to appear before the Special Judge. It is worth noting that her custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) will end today (March 23).

The ED, in its request for a further five-day remand of Kavitha, informed the Court that searches are currently being conducted at her nephew Mekha Saran's residence. Meanwhile, the Supreme Court of India declined to grant bail to Kavitha on Friday (March 22). The bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna, MM Sundresh, and Bela M Trivedi directed Kavitha to approach the trial court, as this is the usual protocol followed by the Supreme Court. Sibal mentioned that individuals are being detained based on the testimony of a witness. In response, the Supreme Court Bench stated that it is not currently examining the merits of the case. Kavitha, who is a member of the Telangana Legislative Council and the daughter of former Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, filed a petition with the Supreme Court to challenge her arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in relation to the Delhi excise policy case.

Kavitha was arrested on March 15 and was held in the custody of the ED until March 23 after a search operation was conducted at her residence. The ED alleges that Kavitha, along with other individuals, conspired with high-ranking members of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), including Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, who were recently arrested, to obtain advantages in the formulation and implementation of the Delhi Excise policy. According to ED officials, Kavitha was involved in providing ₹100 crore to AAP leaders in exchange for these advantages. To date, a total of 16 individuals, including Kejriwal, Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Vijay Nair from AAP, have been arrested in connection with this case.
