Disputes, if any, subject to jurisdiction in New Delhi

New Delhi: A big revelation has been made about DK Shivakumar, Congress leader and the party’s troubleshooter in Karnataka. Documents found by the investigating agencies in the money laundering case have revealed that the politician deposited the money at the Congress headquarters.

The Enforcement Directorate (ED) suspects that the money was raised through illegal businesses. After this revelation, the All India Congress Committee has once again come under the scanner.

The ED will interrogate Congress leader Vijay Moolgund in this matter. Vijay Moolgund holds the post of a secretary in the party.

The ED is preparing to interrogate several other Congress leaders, including some officials of the accounts department of AICC, in this regard. The ED will soon issue a notice of inquiry to these leaders and officials.

ED questions Shivakumar about crores given to AICC

The ED has raised many questions regarding the crores of rupees given to AICC by DK Shivakumar, who is in custody. The ED suspects that DK Shivakumar deposited crores of rupees at the AICC office at the Akbar Road national headquarters of the Congress in 2017. It is alleged that this money came through hawala, which was deposited in the Congress office by the associates of the Karnataka leader.

Earlier, a raid on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath had yielded that there the Congress headquarters were receiving money from there as well.

ED questions DK’s daughter, too

The ED had yesterday questioned Shivakumar’s daughter Aishwarya for more than 7 h in connection with the investigation into alleged money laundering by the father. Officials said 22-year-old Aishwarya was interrogated and her statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA).

Aishwarya handed over some personal financial documents to the agency. She is a trustee in an educational trust, which was created by her father. Officers said that the trust ran several engineering and other colleges and Aishwarya was the main person behind it. She said that the trust had assets and business worth crores.

Former Karnataka minister Shivakumar was arrested by the ED on 3 September. Since then, he has been in custody.

In September last year, the central agency had registered a case of money laundering against Shivakumar and Hanumanthaiah, an employee of the Karnataka building in New Delhi. A criminal case was filed on the basis of a charge sheet of the Income Tax Department filed against the Congress’s troubleshooter and others before a Bengaluru court for alleged tax evasion and hawala deals.
