#MLCKavithaDeniedBail: Setback in Delhi High Court

MLC Kavitha faced a setback in the Delhi High Court as her bail petition was rejected. Arrested in connection with the liquor case, Kavitha is currently in Tihar Jail. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) and the CBI are investigating the case, with the ED initially arresting her for her alleged involvement in the excise policy scam. The CBI later arrested her while she was still in jail. The Delhi High Court, during a hearing on Monday, refused her bail petition, citing her significant role in the conspiracy behind the scam. Both the ED and CBI opposed her bail, arguing that she could influence witnesses if released. Kavitha was arrested on March 15 in Hyderabad by the ED, accused of playing a prominent role in the liquor scam as part of the 'South Group'. The investigation alleges that she paid ₹100 crores to the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi to alter the liquor policy for her commercial benefits.
