BRS MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha receives new notices from ED regarding fresh charges
The Enforcement Directorate, an investigative agency under the Ministry of Finance, has issued fresh notices to BRS leader and MLC K Kavitha in connection with a money laundering case. The agency has requested Kavitha to attend questioning on March 20, 2021. However, Kavitha did not appear before the agency on the scheduled date and instead sent her representative with the documents requested by the ED.
Kavitha has cited her pending petition before the Supreme Court as the reason for not appearing before the ED. She has stated that until the Supreme Court gives its verdict, the ED should wait for the court’s decision.
The ED is investigating allegations of money laundering against Kavitha and has requested her cooperation in the investigation. The agency had previously issued notices to Kavitha, requesting her to appear for questioning. However, Kavitha had sought exemption citing her duties as an MLC.
The ED’s investigation is ongoing, and it remains to be seen how Kavitha’s case will progress in light of her non-appearance before the agency.
