Delhi liquor policy case: Supreme Court directs K Kavitha to approach trial court for bail

The Supreme Court on Friday directed BRS leader K Kavitha, who was arrested last week by the Enforcement Directorate for her alleged involvement in the Delhi Excise Policy case, to approach the trial court for bail.

The order was passed by a Special Bench of Justice Sanjiv Khanna, Justice MM Sundresh and Justice Bela Trivedi on a bail petition of the BRS leader.

Appearing for Kavitha, Senior Advocate Kapil Sibal requested the Bench not to ask him to go back to the High Court. He asked the Apex Court to look into what was happening in the country. He argued that all the statements made so far in the case were of approvers.

Telling the Senior Counsel not to get emotional, the Bench directed him to go through the trial court for bail. The Bench noted that relief cannot be granted to the petitioner only because she was a political person.

It further observed that it was hearing the Vijay Madanlal challenge o the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) as fair as the bail was concerned.

The national agency arrested Kavitha last week on allegations that she conspired with top leaders of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), including its national convenor and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, over formulation of a favourable liquor policy.
