The BRS leader was appealing against the city court’s order rejecting her bail application.

On May 6, the city court while denying her bail in the case registered by ED ruled that there appeared to be a “prima facie” case indicating Kavitha’s involvement in the commission of the offense of money laundering in relation to the Delhi excise policy case.

While rejecting bail in the CBI case, the court had ruled that her role “prima facie” appeared as that of a key conspirator in the collection and payment of upfront money to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) through co-accused to get favourable provisions in the excise policy.
