Hyderabad: Days after Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) had served a notice on TRS MLC K. Kavitha for her examination in connection with the Delhi liquor scam case at 11 a.m. on December 6, she on Monday sought another date after December ten for meeting the agency officials.

In a letter to Raghavendra Vatsa, Head of Branch/DIG CBI, ACB, Delhi today, Kavitha, daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao stated that ‘As proposed by you, I am not in position to meet on 6th December 2022, because of my preoccupied schedule, I will be able to meet you either on 11th, 12 or 14th, 15th of this month whichever as convenient to you at my residence in Hyderabad. Same may please be confirmed at the earliest.

Kavitha also said I am a law abiding citizen and will cooperate with the investigation. I will meet you on any of the above said dates to cooperate with the investigation. It is made clear that is without prejudice to my legal rights available under law.’

CBI on Friday evening while serving notice through an e-mail on Kavitha to examine her said, we are leaving to her to attend the examination at her residence in Hyderabad or Delhi as per her convenience, but she informed the investigating agency that she would meet its officers at her Hyderabad residence.

The CBI notice to Ms. Kavitha followed a remand report submitted by the Enforcement Directorate in court on November 30 following the arrest of one of the accused in the case the Gurugram Businessman Amit Arora by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The TRS MLC also mentioned in the letter to Mr Raghavendra Vatsa that, ‘I am in receipt of your e-mail, wherein you have stated that the copy of FIR as well as complaint is available on the website.

She also said I have carefully gone through the contents of the FIR, list of accused persons as well as the contents of the complaint dated 22.07.2022. I wish to place on record that my name does not figure in any manner what so ever.’

Kavitha in her earlier letter to Alok Kumar Shahi, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Anti-Corruption Bureau of CBI at New Delhi on Saturday asked him to furnish copies of the complaint lodged against her by the Ministry of Home Affairs and the consequent First Information Report issued by the agency as part of probe into her alleged role in the Delhi liquor scam.

She said the requested documents could be provided at the earliest to enable her to acquaint herself with the contents and give appropriate answer within a reasonable period of time.

The date of the meeting of CBI officials with her at Hyderabad could be fixed after the receipt of documents, KCR’s daughter added.
