Congress's DK Shivakumar Faces Arrest After Court Refuses Protection

Karnataka Congress's chief troubleshooter DK Shivakumar faces arrest after his request for protection from arrest was rejected by the Karnataka High Court today. The former minister was asked by the Enforcement Directorate to appear before it in Delhi this afternoon in connection with a money-laundering case. The probe agency called him last night after his petition challenging the summons was rejected by the Karnataka High Court yesterday.
Addressing reporters this morning before leaving for Delhi, he described the manner in which he was summoned. "I came home at 9:35 pm. We had gone out as a family. Immediately, ED officers came and gave me a summons. They said to come at 1 pm. I said that I have personal and family commitments. Gauri Pooja preparations are there. I asked for more time," he said.
The Enforcement Directorate registered a money-laundering case against DK Shivakumar and a few others in September last year for alleged tax evasion and illegal transactions worth crores.
The Congress leader has approached the Karnataka High Court's division bench against yesterday's order that rejected his petition against the probe agency's summons. Mr Shivakumar, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi and others have been named in the money-laundering case.
