BJP accuses Congress of ‘hawala’ links after D K Shivakumar aide reveals trail of transaction leading to Congress HQ

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) launched an attack on Tuesday against the Congress accusing them of being involved in corruption and having links with the hawala operators. The BJP released documents related to the ‘hawala link’ investigation and involvement of the Congress in money laundering after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) registered a case against Karnataka Congress strongman D K Shivakumar.

Speaking to the media, BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra released documents of various witnesses which alleges that hawala money transportation took place from Chandni Chowk to the Congress headquarters at Akbar Road in New Delhi.

The BJP accused Congress President Rahul Gandhi of his involvement in the money laundering and said that the documents show that money trail from the state went to the Congress’ headquarters at Akbar Road.

The documents listed by Patra contains statements of H Anjaneya, assistant liaison officer of Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, who has allegedly revealed that he used to carry money to the AICC headquarters which was brought by N Rajendra, caretaker of the Karnataka Bhavan.

“I agree that, with Jagadish Chand, I carried cash to AICC office on Akbar Road. But money was brought by one Rajendran. I just accompanied Rajendran to the AICC office. But I never went to Chandni Chowk with Chand,” said H Anjaneya. Interestingly, Jagadish Chand, a resident of Delhi was the driver of the late Suresh Kumar Sharma, proprietor of Bengaluru-based Sharma Travels, who was a very close aide of D K Shivakumar.

The BJP claimed that Anjaneya had also said that he was one of the trusted assistants of Shivakumar and used to collect cash and store it at apartments in Safdarjung Enclave. “I was given the responsibility of storing the cash belonging to Shivakumar. Whenever I get a direction from Shivakumar, I receive cash from the appropriate person. After collecting the cash, I would store it either at B2, B4 or B5, Safdarjung Enclave”, Anjaneya has reportedly revealed to the IT officials according to the documents released by the BJP.

The allegations from the BJP comes after ED officials registered a case of money laundering against Karnataka Congress leader D K Shivakumar. The IT officials had conducted various raids on the premises of the D K Shivakumar and had recovered a huge amount of cash. Further investigation had revealed that D K Shivakumar was alleged to be involved in ‘hawala’ transactions. He has been booked by the ED along with the other three members, including H Anjaneya. Meanwhile, Shivakumar has admitted himself in Apollo Hospital in Bengaluru where he is undergoing treatment for food poisoning.
