K Kavitha, the daughter of BRS chief K Chandrashekar Rao, was arrested on Friday following a raid by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) at her home in Hyderabad regarding the Delhi liquor policy case. She was subsequently taken to Delhi for additional questioning.

There was a dispute between ED officials and KTR, Kavitha’s brother and a BRS leader, when the agency served an arrest memo to him. KTR alleged that the ED had issued an “illegal arrest warrant” against Kavitha. ED officials warned KTR not to obstruct their investigation.

Earlier in the day, BRS spokesperson Sravan Dasoju labeled the ED raids as “politically motivated” and asserted that both the BJP and Congress are collaborating to target leaders of the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led party.

The BRS leader accused the ED and IT of targeting the party under the influence of the BJP. He stated that wherever Prime Minister Narendra Modi goes, the ED and IT operations either come before or after. The leader alleged that this tactic is being employed in Telangana to create chaos within the BRS. He also criticized the ED and IT for not taking action against Congress leaders in Telangana who have allegedly amassed wealth illegally.

In the previous month, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) summoned Kavitha regarding the same case. This marked the second instance where the BRS MLC was called upon to appear before the central investigative agency. However, she opted to skip the summons, citing her “pressing onerous engagements” in a letter.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) has claimed that Kavitha is associated with the South Lobby and was represented by Arun Pillai. Pillai purportedly played a significant role in benami investments and bribery within Indospirits.
