K Kavitha, Bharat Rashtra Samithi leader and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, has approached the Supreme Court against her questioning by the Enforcement Directorate in the Delhi liquor policy case.
In her petition, K Kavitha challenged the ED summons in a money-laundering case linked to the liquor policy.
A bench comprising Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justice P S Narasimha agreed to hear the plea of Kavitha, who is also a member of legislative council, on March 24.
“Can a woman be called to the office of the Enforcement Directorate?” her lawyer said while seeking an urgent hearing of the plea.
It is “completely against the law”, the lawyer said.
On March 11, the BRS leader was questioned for hours by the Enforcement Directorate in the money laundering case.
The agency has summoned her again for a third time on March 16.
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is already under the ED’s custody in the same case. He was also arrested by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for alleged corruption in framing Delhi’s new liquor policy, which was later scrapped.
