The Delhi Rouse Avenue Court on 8 April dismissed the interim bail application moved by BRS leader K Kavitha in the money-laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy.

The arrested BRS leader on Saturday, April 6, moved a city court urging it to repeal its order that permitted the CBI to interrogate her in Tihar jail. 

Advocate Nitesh Rana representing Kavitha's stance alleged that the CBI thwarted the due process of law by filing a plea that sought permission to question her “behind her back”, reported PTI.

"I have grave apprehension that CBI may not have divulged true facts in order to obtain a favourable order from the court," Rana informed the court as the CBI probes the corruption angle in the excise policy scam. The advocate asked the court to suspend its Friday, April 5 order that allowed Kavitha's questioning in judicial custody until her stand was heard and taken into account.

The next hearing date over the matter was scheduled for April 10 after the CBI sought time to reply to Kavitha's plea. However, special Judge Kaveri Baweja did not grant any interim relief to Kavitha for Enforcement Directorate (ED) and CBI cases.

The BRS leader was arrested on March 15 from Hyderabad by the ED for the money laundering accusations and was sent to 14-day judicial custody last Tuesday.

K Kavitha, a Member of Telangana Legislative Council, had requested the court on April 4 to extend her interim bail considering her 16-year-old son's exams for which he needed his mother's “moral and emotional support.”

Former Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao's daughter, K Kavitha is accused of being a key member of the “South Group”. 

The South Group is alleged to have paid the ruling AAP in the national capital kickbacks of 100 crore in return for a big share of liquor licences in Delhi.
