CBI has already interrogated Kavita in this excise scam.

This inquiry took place at his residence in Hyderabad in the month of December last year.

After this, in the new policy, the wholesaler's margin was reduced from 6% to 12% and the new excise policy was introduced with 185% margin to the retailer.

It is believed that out of 12 percent, 6 percent money was decided to go to the leaders of Aam Aadmi Party in the form of black money.

For this, South Group gave Rs 100 crore advance kickback to Vijay Nair.

Vijay Nair was handling everything on behalf of the Aam Aadmi Party.

In return, South Lobby was given 65% stake in Sameer Mahendru's Indospirit.

Through Indospirt, all of them got entry in retail business despite being a manufacturer of liquor.

It is alleged that K.

Kavitha was part of the same group from South, which had given a bribe of Rs 100 crore to Vijay Nair through Dinesh Arora.
