On April 8, the Delhi Rouse Avenue Court rejected BRS leader K Kavitha's request for interim bail in the money-laundering case related to the abolished Delhi excise policy. Previously, Kavitha had asked the court to overturn its decision allowing the CBI to question her in Tihar jail. Her lawyer, Advocate Nitesh Rana, claimed that the CBI had violated the proper legal process by seeking permission to interrogate her without her knowledge. Rana expressed concerns that the CBI may have concealed certain facts to obtain a favorable court order. As the CBI investigates the corruption aspect of the excise policy scandal, Rana requested that the court suspend its previous order until Kavitha's position could be heard. The next hearing was scheduled for April 10, as the CBI needed time to respond to Kavitha's plea. However, Judge Kaveri Baweja did not grant any temporary relief to Kavitha in the ED and CBI cases.

ED arrested K Kavitha, daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, in Hyderabad on charges of money laundering. She was then taken into judicial custody for 14 days. Kavitha's bail plea was submitted to the court on April 4, requesting an extension due to her son's exams. She claimed that her son required her "moral and emotional support". Kavitha is believed to be a prominent member of the alleged "South Group", accused of providing kickbacks of ₹100 crore to the ruling AAP in exchange for a significant portion of liquor licenses in Delhi.
