BRS MLC Kavitha Skips CBI Summons in Delhi Liquor Policy Scam Case

 - Sakshi Post

Hyderabad: KCR's daughter and BRS MLC K Kavitha has refused to attend the questioning at the Central Bureau of Investigation headquarters in New Delhi. She was summoned by the central agency in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam case. The BRS MLC was asked to appear before it on February 26, Monday. 

Kavitha on Sunday wrote a letter to the CBI and cited her busy schedule and pending petition in the Supreme Court as reasons for skipping the appearance before the investigating team. She, however, agreed to appear before the agency in a virtual mode if it shares the particulars and timings in advance. 

In her letter, Kavith has requested the agency to withdraw the notice issued to her under Section 41-A of CrPC summoning her for questioning in connection with the Delhi liquor policy scam case. Notably, this notice is issued to a person against whom a ‘reasonable suspicion’ exists that the person had committed a cognizable offence. 

“I may request you to firstly revoke or withdraw the subject notice as it appears to be sent by invoking Section 41A CrPC while not being aware or conscious of the earlier notice sent under Section 160 CrPC,” Kavitha wrote. 

On Friday, CBI had named Kavitha as an accused in the Delhi liquor policy scam case. Kavitha, along with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, faces the possibility of arrest. 

In the letter, she also argued that a PMLA case linked to the same investigation is sub-judice before the Supreme Court and the additional solicitor general had apprised the court that she may not be summoned until the hearing and the same would in essence and spirit apply to the present case.
