Kavitha, BRS MLC was questioned by the ED in the Delhi liquor scam case. The officials have asked Kavitha, many questions during the marathon session which lasted about 9 hours.

Kavitha was issued summons once again asking her to appear before the ED officials on 16th March 2023. With this background, Kavitha had a series of meetings with KCR.
On arrival at Hyderabad on Saturday, late night…she has gone directly to Pragathi Bhavan and met KCR. She has apprised him about the ED’s enquiry and the related details. Again on Sunday morning, Kavitha along with Harish Rao has met KCR once again at Pragathi Bhavan. KCR was given the feedback on the various questions that were put up by the ED and her responses to them. As per reports, it appears that Kavitha and Harish Rao had a detailed discussion with KCR about the next date of enquiry and the strategies to be adopted for the same. They have also met the legal experts at the Pragathi Bhavan and had discussions. The discussions were mainly focused on the CBI enquiry and also on the ED’s earlier notices issued to Kavitha, the recorded statements given by several individuals who are involved in the Delhi liquor scam and also about the points mentioned in the charge sheets. Further discussions were held on the type of questions to be expected from the ED on 16th March 2023, the next hearing date and how to respond to them and also focused on the future course of actions based on the outcome of the session on 16th March 2023. The meeting with legal experts after the ED’s enquiry seems to be an important moment.
It’s anybody’s guess about what decision CM KCR is going to take and how best he would be handling this situation. In the liquor scam, the ED officials have arrested Arun Ramachandra Pillai on 6th March 2023.He has filed a petition at the Rouse Avenue Court on 10th March 2023 stating that he would like to withdraw his earlier statement submitted to the ED.
