NEW DELHI: Days after the Enforcement Directorate (ED) filed a chargesheet in connection with a 2018 money-laundering probe involving Karnataka Congress chief DK Shivakumar, a Delhi court on Tuesday directed him to appear before it on July 1.
Special Judge Vikas Dhull directed Shivakumar, a former Karnataka government minister, to appear on July 1.
The court summoned the Congress leader after taking cognisance of a chargesheet filed by ED through its Special Public Prosecutor Nitesh Rana against Shivakumar and others in the case. The chargesheet was filed by the financial probe agency after recording the statements of several people after gathering the evidence.
Shivakumar was arrested by the ED in the case on September 3, 2019, and was granted bail by the Delhi High Court on October 23, 2019.
In September 2018, the ED registered a money laundering case against Shivakumar, Anjaneya Hanumanthaiah, an employee at the Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and other people allegedly linked to him.
The ED had earlier questioned Shivakumar, his daughter and several others in connection with the case. The ED has also carried out searches at the premises linked to Shivakumar in Karnataka and Delhi after registering the case.
