    The Rouse Avenue Court in New Delhi has ordered BRS leader K Kavitha to be in CBI custody until April 15 in connection with the alleged Delhi excise policy scam. Kavitha, aged 46, was arrested by the CBI at Tihar jail following her previous arrest by the Enforcement Directorate in a related money laundering case.

    During a hearing, the CBI argued that Kavitha was uncooperative and evasive during questioning, providing unsatisfactory answers that contradicted evidence recovered by the agency. The CBI requested five days of custody to further investigate her involvement in the case.

    Kavitha’s counsel, Advocate Nitesh Rana, opposed the CBI’s request, labeling her arrest as illegal and accusing the agency of violating her fundamental rights. The CBI claimed that an accused-turned-approver confirmed allegations of large payments being made to co-accused individuals, including former AAP communications in-charge Vijay Nair.
