Alleged Liquor Scam: Kavitha’s Threat to Sharath Reddy Over AAP’s Rs. 25 Crore Demand – CBI’s Major Revelation

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has made significant revelations regarding an alleged threat issued by K. Kavitha to BR Shanthi leader Sharath Chandra Reddy. According to statements presented to the court by the CBI, Kavitha is said to have coerced Reddy into paying Rs. 25 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP). 

Kavitha allegedly threatened Reddy, stating that if he wished to secure a license for five retail zones under the new liquor policy in Delhi, he would have to pay the aforementioned sum. Furthermore, she purportedly warned Reddy that failure to comply could result in financial losses to his businesses in Telangana and Delhi. These revelations shed light on the gravity of the accusations and underline the importance of a thorough investigation into the matter.

CBI Discloses Details of Allegations

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has revealed crucial information regarding the case involving K. Kavitha. Justice Kaveri Bavaji has stated that Kavitha, daughter of the former Chief Minister of Telangana, Chandrashekhar Rao, made a decision to enter the liquor business in Delhi. 

There was a mutual connection between South Group’s Vijay Nayar and the AAP. Kavitha allegedly warned Sharath Reddy that if he wanted to engage in the liquor business in Delhi under the new excise policy, he would need to pay Rs. 25 crore to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Rs. 5 crore for each retail zone. Moreover, Reddy would have to provide this amount to his associates Arun A.R. Pillai and Abhishek Boinapalli. 

In return, they would have the support of Vijay Nayar, who is close to Arvind Kejriwal. The agency has alleged that in March and May 2021, when the liquor policy was being finalized, Kavitha’s associates Arun A.R. Pillai, Abhishek Boinapalli, and Buchibabu Gorantla were detained at the Oberoi Hotel in Delhi, and they were influenced by Vijay Nayar to favor Kavitha’s liquor policy. 

After assurances of support from Kavitha, Orbindo Realty and Infrastructure Private Limited paid Rs. 80 lakh to the Telangana Awareness under Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in March 2021.

Coercion in Land Sale: CBI Discloses Further Findings

According to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), more details have emerged in their investigation, indicating that in June-July 2021, K. Kavitha coerced Sharath Chandra Reddy into selling a piece of agricultural land located in Mahabubnagar, Telangana. 

However, Reddy was not eager to purchase the aforementioned land, and he was unaware of its original value. The CBI informed the court that Kavitha pressured Reddy into paying Rs. 14 crore for the land exchange and entered into an agreement with Ventures Private Limited, a company affiliated with the Orbindo Group, to finalize the sale. 

As per the CBI’s revelations, Sharath Reddy ended up paying Kavitha Rs. 14 crore through two bank transactions in July 2021 – Rs. 7 crore in July and another Rs. 7 crore between November and December 2021. The agency alleged that in November and December 2021, Kavitha demanded Rs. 25 crore from Sharath Reddy for securing licenses in five retail zones in Delhi, with each zone requiring a payment of Rs. 5 crore.
