Delhi Court Takes Cognisance of ED Charge Sheet in Excise Policy Scam

A Delhi court acknowledged a supplementary charge sheet by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) against BRS leader K Kavitha and others involved in a money laundering case linked to an alleged excise scam on Wednesday. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja, presiding over ED and CBI cases, noted that the prosecution’s complaint provided “sufficient” prima facie evidence to proceed against the accused.

Kavitha, a Telangana Member of Legislative Council (MLC) and daughter of former Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, has been issued a production warrant for June 3. She is currently in judicial custody at Tihar central jail regarding this case.

The case revolves around purported corruption and money laundering in the design and implementation of the Delhi government’s now-defunct excise policy for the fiscal year 2021-22. This action followed a recommendation from Lt Governor V K Saxena for a CBI investigation into the policy’s alleged discrepancies. The ED initiated its proceedings based on a CBI FIR dated August 17, 2022, continuing the legal scrutiny into the high-profile case.
