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.
