Ask the question: The Enforcement Directorate or ED has filed a cautionary plea in the Supreme Court on the plea of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s MLC daughter Kavitha. Earlier, Kavita had challenged the ED summons by filing a petition in court. Recently, the agency questioned him for hours in the Delhi Liquor Policy case and called him again on March 16, but he did not appear as the matter was pending in court.
Now the investigating agency has filed an application and requested the court not to pass the order without hearing. Kavita cited rules in her petition saying that no woman can be called for questioning at the ED office and should be questioned at home. On March 15, the Supreme Court agreed to the hearing and fixed the date of hearing on March 24.
100 crore embezzlement case
In the Delhi Liquor policy case, K Kavita is accused of money laundering and alleged manipulation of Rs 100 crore. Kavita’s lawyer said that it is completely against the law to call a woman to the office and interrogate her. He said he has requested for speedy hearing of the petition filed and Chief Justice DY Chandrachud himself will hear the matter.
Demand for ED investigation before the lawyer
The petition filed by Kavita’s lawyer Vandana Sehgal sought quashing of the summons issued by the ED on March 7 and 11. The lawyer argued that the agency called Kavitha to the office without questioning her at her home. Apart from this, Kavita demanded the agency’s cross-examination, audio-video recording of the statement before the lawyer. Notably, in the Delhi Liquor Policy case, the central agency interrogated ED K Kavita for 9 hours, but she did not appear in subsequent summonses.
