BRS leader and MLC K Kavitha, along with her husband Anil Kumar, appeared at the ED Office on Monday for the second time in connection with the money laundering case related to the Delhi Liquor Scam. The ED is investigating the case after the scam came to light. Kavitha will be questioned along with other accused, including Arun Ramachandra Pillai, who is considered to be the key person in the Indo spirits and alleged to be benami of Kavitha’s will, and Manish Sisodiya, who was also present at the ED office. The custody of Pillai will end today.
Earlier, Kalvakuntla Kavitha, along with state ministers, including her brother IT and Industry minister KT Rama Rao and Srinivas Goud, had gone to New Delhi in support of Kavitha. Reports suggest that she had discussions with legal experts regarding the inquiry.
A heavy police force has been deployed in front of KCR’s residence and ED office in Delhi. The ED has already filed a caveat petition in the Supreme Court, requesting them not to issue prior orders without hearing the arguments of ED. The ED had already questioned some members of the ‘South Group,’ including Arun Ramachandra Pillai, Abhishek Boinpally, and Sharat Chandra Reddy. The ED is seeking information regarding the South Group, while Kavitha had submitted bank statements to the ED.
