By India Today Web Desk: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) on Wednesday arrested Hyderabad-based chartered accountant Butchi Babu Gorantla, in connection with the Delhi excise policy case. The accused is believed to be a former aide of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s daughter MLC Kavitha, whose name had already featured in the case.
He will be produced in court today.
According to reports, Gorantla was allegedly involved with the formulation and implementation of the Delhi excise policy.
His role in the now-scrapped Delhi Excise Policy caused “wrongful gain” to Hyderabad-based wholesale and retail licensees and their beneficial owners, the CBI alleged.
KCR’s daughter Kavitha was earlier questioned in connection with the case by the CBI in Hyderabad on December 12.
She was part of the “South Cartel” that benefited from kickbacks in the liquor policy case, the Enforcement Department had alleged.
