K. Kavitha and Co-Accused Issued Production Warrants by Delhi Court in Money Laundering Probe

On Wednesday, a Delhi court issued production warrants for Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader K. Kavitha and co-accused Chanpreet Singh in response to the sixth supplementary chargesheet filed by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

This chargesheet is part of the money laundering investigation linked to the now-defunct Delhi Excise Policy 2021-22.

Special Judge Kaveri Baweja remarked that there is ample evidence on record to proceed against the accused individuals – Kavitha, Chanpreet Singh, Arvind Singh, Damodar Sharma, and Prince Kumar – and directed their physical presence before the court.

Production warrants were issued for Kavitha and Chanpreet Singh, currently in judicial custody, while summons were issued for Arvind Singh, Sharma, and Kumar, who were chargesheeted without arrest.

The ED filed its sixth supplementary chargesheet on May 10. Kavitha, aged 46, was initially apprehended by the ED on March 15 in connection with the money laundering case and was sent to judicial custody on March 26. The ED has identified her as a key figure in the irregularities surrounding the excise policy. Subsequently, she was arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on April 11, following interrogation in Tihar jail.

Kavitha is among the four high-profile arrests in this case, which also include Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, former Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) parliamentarian Sanjay Singh.

The court dismissed her bail application, stating that prima facie, her role seems to be that of a key conspirator. She has also approached the Delhi High Court seeking bail, with the decision on her application pending.
