New Delhi. A Delhi court on Saturday booked Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) Telangana Legislative Council member (MLC) K. in a money laundering case related to the alleged Delhi Excise Policy scam. Kavita was sent to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till March 23.

ED has arrested party president and former Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao’s daughter, Kavita was arrested after a search at her residence in Hyderabad on Friday. He was arrested today before Rouse Avenue Court’s Special Judge M.K., before Nagpal. The agency had asked for 10 days remand.

Senior advocate Vikram Chaudhary appeared for the BRS leader and special counsel Zohaib Hussain appeared for the ED.

Initially, Choudhary accused the ED of violating Supreme Court directions, saying that Kavita’s arrest is a gross abuse of power and authority, and in disregard of the apex court’s September 2023 order.

In response, the ED said it has not made any statement in any court, including the Supreme Court, that no punitive action will be taken against Kavita, and argued that there is sufficient evidence and statements of witnesses against the MLC arrested in the case. .

The agency also accused the BRS leader of destroying evidence and said it had summoned her husband Anil Kumar and her domestic help on March 18 to extract the digital data.

The verdict is likely to be pronounced today itself.

“We are also calling two other people who have given statements against him to confront him face to face,” the ED said.

Despite the summons, Kavita has not appeared before the agency since October last year. Kavita had also approached the Supreme Court challenging the ED’s summoning of a woman to its office.
