The CBI also filed an FIR against Shivakumar. Addressing the media after the search concluded, Shivakumar said, “I want to ask the CM one thing. You have given permission to the CBI to conduct a probe. So why was the FIR registered on September 30? Why could they not do it before? Why did they do it after I announced my plans to protest?”  DK Shivakumar said while pointing to the declaration that he would create the protest in Bengaluru in connection with the Hathras rape case.

He said that the CBI recovered Rs 1.47 lakh at his residences and nothing more. He stated that the reports that a huge amount of cash was found was false. When asked about the CBI’s statement about the allegation of disproportionate assets, he said, “Let them hang me then. The property value has increased since I purchased it. They are asking market value. CBI has given a check period from 2013 and 2018. Let them investigate. I don’t mind. I am a law-abiding citizen.”  He said that he would fully collaborate with the CBI’s inquiry and maintained that the searches were politically motivated.
