Delhi liquor case: After nine hours of ED questioning, Kavitha walks out

ED summons the BRS leader again on March 21.

New Delhi/Hyderabad: The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRC) MLC K Kavitha was let off by the Enforcement Directorate after nine hours of questioning in the national capital on Monday. However, the central agency summoned her again on March 21.

While getting inside her car, Kavitha waved a victory sign to her supporters who had gathered outside the ED office.

This was the BRS leader’s second round of questioning, during which she was confronted with co-accused and documentary evidence. She was also confronted with Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Pillai, whose remand ended on Monday.

Kavitha had left for New Delhi the previous day. She was accompanied by IT Minister and elder brother KT Rama Rao and MP Santosh Kumar along with advocates and senior members of the BRS legal cell.

During her first appearance, she was reportedly confronted with Arun Pillai, who represented the ‘South Group’ which allegedly gave kickbacks of Rs 100 crore to AAP leaders which was allegedly used during the Assembly polls in Goa.

Pillai has reportedly said that he was Kavitha’s associate.

Last Wednesday, the ED recorded the statement of Buchchi Babu, Kavitha’s former auditor and also a member of the South Group.

Kavitha has been maintaining that she has never met former Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who has been arrested by the CBI and the ED in connection with the case, claiming that her name is being unnecessarily dragged into the matter.

According to the ED, Kavitha is also one of the representatives of South Group in the excise policy case.
