New Delhi: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Tuesday issued a fresh notice to TRS MLC K Kavitha to appear for questioning on December 11 at Hyderabad in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy scam case. The agency is understood to have agreed to the request of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's daughter to postpone her questioning from Tuesday to any date between December 11-15, reports said.
Kavitha had initially questioned the agency's intention in wanting to grill her. In a letter addressed to the CBI on Monday, Kavitha said she had “carefully gone through the contents of the FIR, list of accused persons as well as contents of the complaint dated 22 July.” “I wish to place on record that my name does not figure in any manner whatsoever,” she stated.
Kavitha was issued a notice by the CBI last Friday that said she needed to be examined in the case registered against Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister, GNCT of Delhi and 14 others regarding the allegations pertaining to Delhi excise policy for 2021-22.
On the same day, Kavitha revealed that she agreed to meet the agency sleuths at her Hyderabad residence as per their request. However, Kavitha's change of stand came after a meeting she had with her father KCR at Pragathi Bhavan. On Saturday, she asked CBI for copies of the complaint and other documents pertaining to the Delhi excise scam, "to enable her to acquaint and answer appropriately (the CBI queries) within a reasonable period of time."
"Date of our meeting can be fixed at Hyderabad after the receipt of the documents,” Kavitha had stated in her letter to CBI.
