Congress’ Karnataka ‘man of the match’ paid unaccounted money to AICC, claims IT Department

Karnataka Congress leader and MLA DK Shivakumar, who was hailed as the ‘man of the match’ for his money and manpower which played pivotal role in the JDS-Congress alliance government in Karnataka, has now found himself in legal tangles. As per reports, newly sworn-in Minister of Water Resources and Medical Education, who was upset about not being made deputy chief minister, Shivakumar, is accused of sending unaccounted money to All India Congress Committee (AICC). In a complaint filed before the Special Court for Economic Offences, the Income Tax Department has claimed that cash payment to the tune of Rs. 3 crore and Rs. 2 crore were made to AICC in January last year.

As per Times Now, cash payments were allegedly made by Shivakumar and his aide Sunil Kumar Sharma to one V Mulgund and Shivakumar set up an extensive network of people and premises across Delhi and Bengaluru to transport and utilise unaccounted cash. A fourth summons was issued to Shivakumar by a special court dealing with economic offences.

Meanwhile, Shivakumar has alleged that he is being harassed for no fault of his and said that he will fight it legally. He claims the action against him is politically motivated.
