DK Shivakumar moved to Tihar jail after being discharged from RML hospital

The special CBI court is also hearing his bail plea today as per latest reports.

Senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar was sent to Tihar jail on Thursday after he was discharged from the RML Hospital in New Delhi.

According to the reports, DK Shivakumar, who was arrested by the ED on September 3 in a money laundering case, was remanded in judicial custody for 14 days till October 1 by Delhi’s Rouse Avenue Court. DK Shivakumar was in the ED custody since his arrest. He will reportedly be lodged in jail number 7 where economic offenders are usually remanded.

However, DK Shivakumar was admitted to Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital after the special judge Ajay Kumar Kuhar had directed the ED to take him for a check-up.

The Rouse Avenue Court is currently hearing Shivakumar’s bail plea. As per latest reports, the ED has also submitted proof of money transactions done allegedly by Shivakumar during demonetisation.

The alleged money laundering by DK Shivakumar came to light after raids by the tax officials on August 2, 2017, on Shivakumar’s four flats in New Delhi, which led to the seizure of unaccounted cash worth Rs. 8.59 crore without evidence of its source of income.

The tax agencies had filed cases against Shivakumar and four other persons associated with him under Sections 277 and 278 of the Income Tax Act, 1961 and Sections 120(B), 193 and 199 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC).

On the basis of the charge sheet filed by the I-T officials, the ED had booked a money laundering and hawala transaction case in September last year. Shivakumar’s daughter Aishwarya was also interrogated by ED on September 12.
