In a significant development, the Delhi Rouse Avenue court has denied interim bail to Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) MLC K. Kavitha in connection with the excise policy-linked money laundering case. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja dismissed Kavitha’s plea, citing that the stage was not appropriate for granting her interim bail.

Background

K. Kavitha, a prominent leader associated with the BRS, had sought interim bail, emphasizing the need to support her 16-year-old son during his crucial exams. She argued that her presence was essential for providing both “moral and emotional support” to her son during this critical period.

Court’s Decision

However, Special Judge Kaveri Baweja ruled against granting interim bail to Kavitha. The court considered various factors, including the ongoing investigation and the alleged destruction of evidence by the accused. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) had raised concerns that Kavitha might have influenced witnesses in the case.

Allegations and Arrest of K Kavitha

The ED arrested K. Kavitha from her residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad, on March 15. The agency alleges that she is a key member of the “South Group,” which stands accused of paying kickbacks of Rs 100 crore to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi. These kickbacks were allegedly in exchange for a significant share of liquor licenses in the national capital.

The Verdict

Despite Kavitha’s plea for interim bail, the court maintained that the circumstances were not conducive to granting her release at this stage. The case continues to attract attention due to its political implications and the alleged financial irregularities related to the excise policy.

As the legal proceedings unfold, K. Kavitha remains in custody, awaiting further developments in the case. The court’s decision underscores the seriousness of the charges and the need for a thorough investigation into the excise policy-related money laundering allegations1.
