DK Shivakumar appears before ED, faces arrest


Bengaluru, Aug 30: Congress leader DK Shivakumar along with his brother DK Suresh appeared before ED in New Delhi. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) served Shivakumar a fresh summons to appear before it on Friday in the money laundering case. This comes after Karnataka High Court on Thursday refused to Shivakumar's petition seeking dismissal of summons issued by the ED.

On being summoned by ED, Shivakumar said, "I've requested Court that it's a simple Income Tax matter. I've already filed ITR. There's no Prevention of Money Laundering(PMLA) Act. Last night, they summoned me to come to Delhi by 1 pm. I'll respect the law."

The senior Congress has also added, "There are no illegal activities that I've done. BJP leaders have said it on record, they're going to harass me. Let them enjoy giving me trouble. But I'll participate & cooperate. I am busy this afternoon, then I will go to Delhi. "

"ED officials came to my home late last night and said by 1 pm tomorrow I have to be in ED office in Delhi, I told them I have Gauri puja and other family obligations, so I will come late. I am leaving for Delhi now, I will honour the summons," the Vokkaliga leader said.

The HC's single-judge bench headed by Justice Arvind Kumar, the Karnataka High Court judge, dismissed the petition and asked Shivakumar to appear before the ED for questioning, as per its summons in money laundering case.
