Delhi HC Seeks CBI Response to Bail Plea by BRS Leader K Kavitha in Excise Policy Case

The Delhi High Court sought a response from the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)  regarding a bail petition submitted by K Kavitha, a leader of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), concerning the Delhi excise policy case.

Justice Swarana Kanta Sharma additionally requested the CBI's response to Kavitha's petition, which challenges her arrest by the agency and the subsequent decision of the trial court to remand her into CBI custody.

Kavitha has further requested the quashing of the trial court's order, which granted permission to the CBI to interrogate her while she was in judicial custody following her arrest by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the money laundering case related to the same scam.

According to Kavitha's plea, the orders issued by the trial court were in contravention of the provisions of criminal law and were deemed as "anathema" to the rights guaranteed under the Constitution.

Kavitha has submitted two distinct pleas. One is an appeal against the trial court's decision denying her bail, while the other is a writ petition challenging both her arrest and the remand order.

Both petitions are scheduled to be heard concurrently on May 24, along with her bail plea in the ED case. Kavitha was apprehended by the CBI on April 11. Previously, she was detained by the ED on March 15 in Hyderabad, amidst accusations of her involvement in a money laundering case linked to the purported Delhi excise scam.

On May 6, the trial court dismissed Kavitha's bail plea in both the CBI and ED cases.

Senior Advocate Vikram Chaudhari along with advocates Nitesh Rana, Deepak Nagar and Mohith Rao appeared for K Kavitha.
