The CBI will record the statement of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter and Member of Legislative Council K Kavitha on December 11 at her residence at Banjara Hills in connection with its probe into the Delhi liquor policy case, said officials Tuesday.

On December 5, Kavitha had informed the CBI that she will not be able to meet the agency’s officials on December 6 as originally scheduled and suggested alternative dates, including December 11. On December 2, the CBI had issued a notice under CrPC Section 160 to the MLC asking her to join the probe on December 6 in connection with its investigation into the alleged corruption in the Delhi government’s now-withdrawn excise policy.

On December 3, Kavitha wrote back to the agency seeking copies of the complaint in the case. “The requested documents may be provided at the earliest to enable me to acquaint myself and answer appropriately within a reasonable period of time. Date of our meeting can be fixed at Hyderabad after the receipt of the documents,” she said in the letter.

The CBI then sent her an email saying a copy of the FIR as well as that of the complaint are available on the website.

In a letter sent on December 5 to CBI DIG Raghavendra Vatsa, Kavitha wrote that her name does not figure in the CBI’s FIR in the case. “I have carefully gone through the contents of the FIR, the list of accused persons as well as the contents of the complaint. I wish to place on record that my name does not figure in any manner whatsoever. As proposed by you, I am not in a position to meet on December 6 because of my preoccupied schedule, I will be able to meet you either on December 11, 12, 14 or 15, whichever is convenient to you, at my residence in Hyderabad. I am a law-abiding citizen and will cooperate with the investigation,” she stated.

The CBI Tuesday wrote back today saying that a CBI team will visit on December 11 at 11 am to record her statement in connection with the case, and sought her confirmation which Kavitha affirmed.
