The Supreme Court on Monday sought a response from the Enforcement Directorate on a plea by Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal challenging his arrest in the liquor policy case. A bench of Justices Dipankar Datta and Sanjiv Khanna issued notice to the Enforcement Directorate on Kejriwal’s plea challenging the Delhi High Court order that had upheld his arrest in the case. The bench asked the Enforcement Directorate to file a reply to the plea by April 24, and said the matter would be heard in the week commencing April 29.

The High Court had on April 9 upheld Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest in the money-laundering case, and said the ED was left with little option after he skipped repeated summonses and refused to join the investigation. The high court had dismissed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader’s petition challenging his arrest by the Enforcement Directorate and subsequent remand in its custody.

The matter is related to money laundering and alleged corruption in the formulation and execution of the Delhi government’s excise policy for 2021-22 that has been scrapped. The Delhi CM was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21, hours after the high court refused to grant him protection from coercive action by ED. The AAP Supremo is currently lodged in Tihar Jail.

The Delhi High Court last week said that there was nothing illegal about Arvind Kejriwal’s arrest by the Enforcement Directorate. Justice Swarna Kanta recorded a prima facie finding that there was adequate proof, including statements of approves, involvement of middlemen and references that cash was handed over for expenditure in the 2022 Goa elections. Accordingly, the Court dismissed the Delhi Chief Minister’s petition challenging his arrest and subsequent remand in Enforcement Directorate’s custody. The court additionally stated that Arvind Kejriwal was involved in an individual capacity in the formulation of the now-scrapped liquor policy and in soliciting bribes.

Excise policy case: Delhi court extends BRS leader K Kavitha’s judicial custody till April 23

Rouse Avenue court sends BRS leader K Kavitha to judicial custody till April 23 in excise policy case

In relation to the excise policy case, Delhi’s Rouse Avenue court on Monday sent BRS leader K Kavitha in judicial custody till April 23. After her three days in police custody was completed, Kavitha, the daughter of former Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, was brought before the court by the CBI.

According to the reports, the CBI informed the court at the hearing that the BRS leader did not need to be subjected to any further custodial questioning.

On March 15, Kavitha was taken into custody by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). She was sent to the CBI custody till March 23 after her arrest. On April 11, the CBI took her into custody and placed her in Tihar jail. The BRS leader had requested temporary relief because her son had an exam, and a Delhi court had previously set its judgment for April 9.

Kavitha was called in for questioning several times prior to her arrest, but she skipped at least two of those summonses. Kavitha was questioned three times in the previous year, and her statements were recorded by the central agency in accordance with the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was allegedly paid Rs 100 crore in kickbacks to influence the excise policy in favour of a liquor lobby, according to documents linked to a land deal and WhatsApp conversations that were found on a co-accused Buchi Babu’s phone during Kavitha’s recent three days in CBI custody.

Following AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Sanjay Singh, the BRS leader was the third popular politician to be taken into custody in connection with the investigation. Kejriwal was the first chief minister in office to be arrested in this matter on March 21.

The Enforcement Directorate claims that Kavitha belonged to the South Group, which gave AAP leaders bribes totaling Rs 100 crore in exchange for nine retail zones under the since-canceled program. The names of other members of the group had also been made public by the investigation agency: Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy, MP for the Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party (YSCRCP); his son Raghav Magunta; Sarath Reddy, founder of the Aurobindo Group; and Sameer Mahendru, a businessman from Delhi.
