What is DK Shivakumar's case?
The ED had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.
Shivakumar has been on the radar of the Income Tax Department and the ED since demonetisation in 2016. An Income Tax search at his New Delhi flat on August 2, 2017 led to seizure of unaccounted cash worth Rs 8.59 crore.
Thereafter, the Income Tax Department lodged cases against the Congress leader and his four other 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).
On Friday, Shivakumar deposed before the ED for the first time after the Karnataka High Court rejected his petition for interim protection from arrest by the agency. He was arrested by the ED after it questioned him for over 29 hours in four days since Friday evening and he will be produced before a Delhi court on Wednesday.
