Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar appears before ED

AIR
Former Karnataka Minister and senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar appeared before the Enforcement Directorate for questioning for the second consecutive day today in a money laundering case. 

Shivakumar was questioned for over five hours yesterday by the ED as he deposed before the agency in the evening.
Karnataka High Court yesterday rejected Shivakumar's petition for interim protection from arrest by the financial probe agency.

The ED had issued the summons on Thursday night, asking Shivakumar to appear before it on Friday afternoon over his alleged involvement in 'hawala' transactions in violation of the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA), 2002.

According to ED sources, Shivakumar was questioned about 8.59 crore rupees seized during Income Tax department raids in August 2017. Shivakumar has been on the radar of the I-T department and the ED since demonetisation in 2016.

The alleged money laundering came to light after I-T sleuths raided Shivakumar's flat in New Delhi on August 2, 2017 which led to the seizure of unaccounted cash to the tune of 8.59 crore rupees without any evidence about its source. Cases were filed against him and four of his associates under Sections 277 and 278 of the Income Tax Act, 1961, and Sections 120(B), 193 and 199 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).
