Excise policy case: Delhi court reserves order on interim bail plea of BRS leader Kavitha | India News

NEW DELHI: The Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court on Thursday deferred the decision on the interim bail plea of BRS leader K Kavitha to Monday, April 8, 2024.
Kavitha, who is currently in judicial custody, had sought interim relief citing her son’s impending exams. Her application for regular bail is scheduled for a hearing on April 20.
The ED accused her of using Indospirit company for kickback recoupment and implicated her in the transfer of Rs 100 crore to AAP leaders.Kavitha and the ‘South Group’ members were alleged to have conspired with AAP leaders, providing kickbacks in exchange for favours in the excise policy.
The leader was remanded to 14-day judicial custody last Tuesday following her arrest, amidst protests by supporters of the BRS party, from her Banjara Hills residence on March 15.
Subsequently, Kavitha was placed in seven-day custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) the following day, with her custodial interrogation extended by an additional three days. The ED’s actions stem from accusations of her involvement in a money laundering scheme linked to the Delhi excise policy of 2021-22, following a search at her Hyderabad residence.
The developments surrounding Kavitha’s legal proceedings have garnered significant attention, reflecting the broader implications of alleged corruption within the political landscape.
