Supreme Court Orders Trial Court Appearance for Former Telangana CM’s Daughter’s Liquor Policy Case Arrest

The Supreme Court on Friday (March 22) rejected the application of the daughter of former Chief Minister of Telangana, K. Chandrashekar Rao, who is also a member of the legislative assembly and a K. Kavitha, in connection with a land acquisition case. 

The Supreme Court stated that K. Kavitha must first file the application in the trial court for the land. Justices Sanjiv Khanna, MM Sundresh, and Bela M. Trivedi emphasized that every individual must abide by the same policy. 

The court clarified that the K. Kavitha cannot directly approach the Supreme Court for permission regarding the land matter. Merely being a political figure does not imply bypassing the process and directly approaching the Supreme Court.

ED detained Kavitha at 7 pm on March 15 after 8 hours of interrogation. He was arrested shortly after this.
