BRS Leader K. Kavitha Challenges CBI’s Interrogation in Tihar Jail Amid Delhi Liquor Scandal Probe

In a significant turn of events, BRS leader K. Kavitha, who was arrested in connection with a money laundering case linked to the Delhi liquor scam, approached the court on Saturday to challenge a plea by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for her interrogation in Tihar Jail. The court had granted permission to the CBI on Friday, following their petition for judicial custody interrogation regarding the alleged corruption case tied to the scandal.

Kavitha’s legal representative, Nitesh Rana, informed the court of their objection to the CBI’s petition, which they claimed was filed “behind her back,” thereby not adhering to due legal process. Rana expressed concerns over the transparency of the facts presented by the CBI to obtain a favorable order from the court and urged that Kavitha’s side be considered before enforcing the order. The court is expected to hear their plea.

The CBI’s request for interrogation came on the heels of the need to further investigate Kavitha’s involvement in the case, particularly focusing on evidence unearthed during the probe. Among the evidence, the CBI seeks to question Kavitha about are chats recovered from the phone of her associate, Buchi Babu, and documents related to a land deal allegedly involving a bribe of ₹100 crores to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

Kavitha, also a Telangana MLC and daughter of former Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, has been accused of being a key member of the “South Group” alleged to have bribed the AAP with ₹100 crores in exchange for a significant share of liquor licenses in Delhi. She was placed under judicial custody last Tuesday for 14 days in the national capital.
