K Kavitha, the daughter of BRS MP and Telangana CM KCR, appeared at the ED headquarters on Monday after being called by the agency in the Delhi liqour case.

K Kavitha, the daughter of Bharatiya Rashtriya Samiti (BRS) MP and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, appeared at the Enforcement Directorate (ED) headquarters on Monday after being called by the agency in the Delhi liqour case.

The ED summoned Kavitha again on March 16 to join its continuing probe in the matter on March 20. The federal agency issued the new summons after Kavitha declined to attend the ED questioning on Thursday, citing a pending Supreme Court case. Kavitha did not come for interrogation, indicating to the investigation team that the case is still pending before the Supreme Court.

According to reports, Kavitha has delivered the materials requested by the investigation agency through her legal representation.

The ED had called her earlier this month to testify in the Delhi excise fraud on Thursday, saying that she was a crucial part of the south cartel.

The BRS leader had petitioned the Supreme Court for an emergency hearing, alleging that because she is a woman, she cannot be summoned to the ED office and that the probe agency’s agents must instead visit her.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear her appeal against the ED summons on March 24, but declined to provide her temporary relief.

According to reports, Kavitha will face up against Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Ramchandra Pillai, who was detained in the case on March 6 night.
