KCR’s daughter’s ex auditor arrested by CBI in Delhi liquor policy case
A Telangana-based chartered accountant, formerly working for KCR’s daughter Kavitha, was summoned to the national capital and arrested by the CBI in the Delhi alcohol policy case.
The CBI said Butchi Babu, a former auditor of K Kavitha, represented “South Group” in the case.
The policy was withdrawn by the AAP government last year after Lieutenant General VK Saxena of the capital ordered an investigation into the CBI, a representative of the BJP-led government at the center.
The Executive Board and CBI have stated that unusual things happened while revising Delhi’s excise policy with complicity and kickbacks from a corridor known as the “Southern Group”.
The group includes Kavitha of Telangana’s ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi, Magunta Srinivasalu Reddy, an MP from Andhra Pradesh’s ruling YSR Congress, and Sarath Reddy of Aurobindo Pharma, the body has alleged.
Accordingly, license fees have been waived or reduced, and undue incentives have been extended to liquor license holders, the agencies have announced.
Delhi’s deputy minister Manish Sisodia has been named as a defendant and questioned in the case.
