K Kavitha Arrested By CBI Inside Tihar Jail:- K Kavitha, a prominent leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), has been apprehended by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) within Tihar Jail on charges of money laundering. This case is linked to the Delhi liquor policy. The arrest follows a recent interrogation of Kavitha by the investigative agency while she was in judicial custody. Kavitha, who is the daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao, has been accused of being a significant member of the "South Group." This group is alleged to have paid the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi a substantial sum of ₹ 100 crore in exchange for a major stake in liquor licenses in the nation's capital. She was remanded to 14-day judicial custody last Tuesday. Earlier, on March 15, the Enforcement Directorate had arrested her from her residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad.

Recently, CBI officials were granted permission by a special court to question Kavitha within the prison. The interrogation focused on WhatsApp conversations found on the phone of co-accused Buchi Babu, as well as documents related to a land transaction. It is alleged that ₹ 100 crore was paid to the AAP as kickbacks in order to influence the excise policy in favor of a liquor lobby in Delhi.

In a letter addressed to the court, Ms. Kavitha expressed her concerns regarding the investigation conducted by central agencies. She referred to it as a "media trial" and emphasized how it has negatively affected her reputation and invaded her privacy. The letter, which was read out in court by her lawyer, stated that her personal and political standing had been deliberately targeted. Furthermore, she lamented the fact that her mobile phone had been publicly displayed on various television channels, thereby directly violating her right to privacy. In an effort to cooperate with the agencies, she provided them with all necessary bank account details. Additionally, she assured the court that she would hand over any mobile phones that the ED claimed she had destroyed.
