A Delhi court on Monday extended the judicial custody of BRS leader K Kavitha until July 3 in connection with a money laundering case related to the alleged excise scam. Special Judge Kaveri Baweja extended the custody following Kavitha's production in court, adhering to a previous production warrant.

The court had earlier issued the warrant after taking cognizance of a charge sheet against Kavitha on May 29. In a related development, the court granted bail to three co-accused individuals—Prince, Damodar, and Arvind Singh. These individuals were charge sheeted by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) without being arrested during the investigation.

Kavitha remains in judicial custody in cases filed by both the ED and the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) concerning the alleged scam. The controversy centers on alleged corruption and money laundering linked to the Delhi government's 2021-22 excise policy, which was later annulled. Kavitha was earlier arrested by the ED from her Hyderabad residence and by the CBI from Tihar Jail.
