Hyderabad/New Delhi:

In a major development in the Delhi liquor policy case, BRS leader K Kavitha has been arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in Hyderabad and is being brought to Delhi, top sources have told NDTV. 

The arrest, hours after her house was raided by the agency, comes weeks ahead of the Lok Sabha polls and on a day that the Congress government in Telangana completes 100 days. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also scheduled to hold a roadshow in the Hyderabad suburb of Malkajgiri this evening.

Ms Kavitha is a Member of the Legislative Council (MLC) in Telangana and the daughter of Bharat Rashtra Samithi chief and former chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao.  

In a video, her brother and former Telangana minister KT Rama Rao can be seen confronting ED officials after he was asked how family members had entered the house. Speaking to the camera, he names an official of the agency, holds up a document, and says, “Search is over and an arrest warrant is produced, and now she says family cannot come in. She also says that she has no transit warrant, she cannot produce before a magistrate but she wants to make the case.”
