Kavitha denied bail in Delhi Liquor Scam again:- The Rouse Avenue court in Delhi on Monday accused BRS leader K Kavitha in a case registered by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Enforcement Directorate (ED) over alleged irregularities in the now-defunct Delhi Liquor Excise Policy 2021. The court rejected her bail application (minus 22 points). Kavitha is currently in custody in a money laundering case related to the alleged excise policy fraud. She was initially arrested by the ED on March 15 from her residence in Banjara Hills, Hyderabad. Later, on April 11th, she was arrested by the CBI from Tihar Jail. The BRS leader's father and former Telangana chief minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has denied all charges against his daughter in the Delhi excise policy case. He alleged that the scam was launched by the Center to tighten the control of the BJP, especially over the Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS).

Former Telangana chief minister maintained that his daughter K Kavitha was "innocent" and said "such great leaders" should not stay in jail for so long. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) have alleged irregularities in the excise policy changes. The investigative agency accused the ``main suspects'' of giving undue benefits to license holders, waiving or reducing license fees, and renewing L-1 licenses without the consent of the relevant authorities.

Meanwhile, law enforcement agencies on May 3 arrested one more person in a money laundering case related to Delhi's excise policy, government officials told news agency PTI. The man, identified as Vinod Chauhan, is accused of transferring cash derived from alleged bribes from the 'South Group' to AAP's campaign for the 2022 Goa assembly elections. This is the 18th arrest made by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in this case. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, party colleague and former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) leader K Kavitha, liquor businessman and many others were arrested by federal agencies.
