Enforcement Dir files charge sheet against K'tka Cong chief Shivakumar

NEW DELHI: Enforcement Directorate (ED) has filed a chargesheet against Karnataka Congress president D K Shivakumar and others under the anti-money laundering law Officials said on Thursday.

In September 2018, the federal investigation agency filed a money laundering case against Shivakumar, A Haumanthaiah, a Karnataka Bhavan employee in New Delhi, and others. The case stemmed from a chargesheet filed by the Income Tax Department in Bengaluru against Shivakumar and others for alleged tax evasion and hawala operations.

With the cooperation of three other accused, the I-T department has accused Shivakumar and his friend S K Sharma of moving a large sum of unaccounted cash on a regular basis through 'hawala' routes.

The ED detained Shivakumar, 60, in this matter in 2019, and questioned a number of people and acquaintances, including his daughter Aisshwarya and Congress MLA Lakshmi Hebbalkar.

In the money laundering case, the Congress leader, a former Karnataka cabinet minister, is free on bail.
