In her letter to the CBI, Kavitha cited several “pressing” public engagements and a pending petition in the Supreme Court as reasons for her absence. This marks the second time she has skipped summons for questioning, having last been questioned by the Central agency in December 2022.

Previously, in March last year, Kavitha sought relief from questioning by the Enforcement Directorate through an appeal to the Supreme Court, which has since put the case on hold, granting her immunity from interrogation until a decision is made.

The recent summons from the CBI, issued under Section 41A of the CrPC, could potentially lead to her arrest if violated.

In her communication to the CBI, Kavitha highlighted the contrast between the current notice and the earlier one issued to her in December 2022, emphasizing that the latter had already been complied with.

Asserting her lack of involvement in the accusations, Kavitha stated that the CBI no longer requires her assistance in the matter, as it is currently sub-judice before the court of law.
