K Kavitha Paid ₹100 Crore to AAP Leaders for Favours in Liquor Policy: ED

New Delhi: Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader and former Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s daughter, K Kavitha, was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on charges of conspiring with top Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders, including Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia, to manipulate liquor policies for personal gain.

The ED alleges that Kavitha paid Rs 100 crore to AAP leaders in exchange for favours related to liquor policies, with illegal funds generated through kickbacks from wholesalers. These actions, the agency claims, constitute acts of corruption and conspiracy.

Kavitha and her associates were purportedly involved in recovering proceeds of the crime paid in advance to AAP, aiming to maximize profits. The 45-year-old BRS leader was apprehended in Hyderabad following searches at her residence and has been remanded to ED custody until March 23.

The ED’s investigation has extended to 245 locations across the country, including Delhi, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Mumbai, in connection with the Delhi liquor policy case. Fifteen individuals, including AAP leaders Manish Sisodia, Sanjay Singh, and Vijay Nair, have been arrested thus far.

In its efforts, the ED has filed one prosecution complaint and five supplementary complaints. Assets worth Rs 128.79 crore have been traced as proceeds of crime in the case.
