Must read

A Delhi court on Friday sent BRS leader K. Kavitha to CBI custody till April 15 in the Delhi excise policy scam.
“The entire case is fake. What can I say about the CBI,” said K. Kavitha after the hearing in the Delhi excise policy case.

The Delhi court reserved the order on an application moved by the CBI seeking five days remand of BRS leader K. Kavitha in the Delhi excise policy case

The CBI custody report said that Kavitha paid Rs 100 crore and that Rs 80 lakh was paid by Sharath Chandra Reddy to Kavitha’s Jagruti’s organisation. The CBI revealed that Kavitha threatened Sarath Chandra Reddy and demanded money.

It is mentioned in the remand report that Kavitha threatened Sarath Chandra Reddy that if the land deal was not done, she would see how he would do business in Telangana. The CBI remand report said that agreements and registration documents were created to purchase agricultural land without any actual land.

The CBI alleged that Kavitha took Rs 14 crore from Sarath Chandra Reddy in the name of the fake land sale. Sarath Chandra Reddy paid Rs 80 lakh to Kavitha’s Telangana Jagruti organisation for introducing him to the Delhi liquor business.

Kavitha reportedly asked Sarath Chandra Reddy to pay Rs 14 crore after buying agricultural land in Mahbubnagar. As per the CBI report, Sarath Chandra Reddy said that he could not give Rs 14 crore as he did not know the actual price of the land. But, the CBI stated in its custody report that Kavitha threatened that Aurobindo Pharma would cease to exist in Telangana if Rs 14 crore was not paid.

It is alleged that Kavitha asked Sarath Chandra Reddy to pay Rs 25 crore for five retail zones at the rate of Rs 5 crore per retail zone.

Kavitha also demanded Rs 50 crore from MP Magunta Srinivasulareddy. The CBI said that he paid Rs 25 crore to Kavitha through his son Magunta Raghava. The CBI said that Kavitha paid Rs 100 crore to Kejriwal’s associate Vijay Nair.

The report said that Kavitha got a 65% stake in Indo Spirits and that Rs 44.45 crore were transferred to Goa through Hawala.

The CBI told the special court that Kavitha is not giving correct answers on all these matters.

The CBI said that the chats of Buchi Babu, the CA of Kavitha, show that she was having a partnership in the wholesale license in Indo Spirits through her proxy.

“The chats also revealed that Kavitha tried to assist Raghav Magunta in obtaining a NoC for the company. Sarath Reddy was also present in the meeting organized at the Taj Hotel Delhi in which Babu, Boinpally etc were present and it was decided that Indo Spirits would be appointed as the wholesaler of Pernod Richard. In March and May 2021, when the excise policy was being formulated, Arun Pillai, Buchi Babu and Boinpally were staying in New Delhi and were getting favours through Vijay Nair,” the CBI said.

The CBI said Kavitha had given an assurance to Reddy for doing the liquor business in Delhi.
