KCR’s daughter connected to Delhi liquor policy scam, says ED
As per the remand report filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Wednesday, the name of TRS leader K Kavitha, a member of Telangana Legislative Council and daughter of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has surfaced. The remand report has been filed for the remand of businessman Amit Arora in the Delhi liquor policy scam.
Kavitha has been named as one of the members of ‘South Group‘.
According to the remand report, businessman Vijay Nair, who has already been arrested in the case, received kickbacks of Rs.100 crore on behalf of AAP leaders from a group, called ‘South Group’.
The remand report says that the policy promoted cartel formations through back door awarded exorbitant wholesale (12 percent) and huge retail (185 percent) profit margins and incentivized other illegal activities on account of the criminal conspiracy of leaders of AAP.
“The 12 percent margin to the wholesalers was devised to extract half of it as a kickback to the AAP leaders. As per the investigation carried out so far, Vijay Nair, on behalf of leaders of AAP has at least received kickbacks to the tune of Rs.100 crore from a group called South Group (controlled by Sarath Reddy, K. Kavitha, Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy) by various persons including Amit Arora. The same has been disclosed by the arrestee Amit Arora in his statements,” reads the report.
This is the first time that Kavitha’s name has figured in the investigation.
It was in August that BJP MP Parvesh Varma and former MLA Manjinder Singh Sirsa made allegations linking her to the scam.
