Kavitha to appear before ED on March 11
In the excise scam case, Kavitha said she would appear before the ED on Saturday and fully cooperate with the investigation agency. However, she added that "these intimidation tactics" would not work against her. The summons was issued after the ED on Tuesday arrested Hyderabad-based businessman Arun Ramchandra Pillai, whom the agency claims was a "benami," or the indirect property buyer of Kavitha.
