The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear on Monday a plea by K Kavitha, Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, seeking protection from arrest and challenging the summons by the Enforcement Directorate in a money laundering case arising out of the alleged Delhi excise policy scam.
A bench of justices Ajay Rastogi and Bela M Trivedi is scheduled to hear the plea by Kavitha.
On March 15, the top court agreed to hear her plea seeking protection from arrest and challenging the summons issued by the ED.
On11 March, the 44-year-old BRS leader deposed before the ED to record her statement and was summoned again on March 16 for questioning.
She was last quizzed for about 10 hours on March 21, which was her third day of deposition before the Enforcement Directorate.
The BRS leader has denied all allegations against her.
According to official sources, Kavitha, during her questioning by the ED, was confronted with the statements made by Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Ramchandran Pillai, who has been arrested in the case, apart from those of a few others allegedly involved in the case.
Kavitha’s statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).
Pillai was arrested by the ED earlier. He has moved a city court accusing the ED of forging his statements.
