K Kavitha, Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, is being quizzed by the Enforcement Directorate for a second consecutive day. While on her way to the probe agency's office, the BRS leader showed her supporters and the media a bag of phones which she claims is the proof she is going to present today.
The probe agency, in one of their earlier reports, had alleged that K Kavitha destroyed 10 phones.
This is the third deposition of Kavitha before the federal probe agency. She has spent around 18-19 hours at the ED headquarters in central Delhi during her two appearances on March 11 and March 20.
The ED has so far arrested 12 people in the case, including former Delhi deputy CM Manish Sisodia, who is accused of favouring a "south group" while framing the Delhi excise policy. His bail request in the CBI case is scheduled to be heard in a special court later today.
The "South Group", according to the ED, comprises Sarath Reddy (promoter of Aurobindo Pharma), Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy (YSR Congress MP from Ongole Lok Sabha seat in Andhra Pradesh), his son Raghav Magunta, Kavitha and others.
K Kavitha has alleged a political conspiracy behind the ED summons. Her party leaders have also said that the probe agency has become an extended arm of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
The BRS leader has alleged that she was summoned by the probe agency on the basis of statements made under threat and coercion.
