Karnataka MLA summoned by ED in Shivakumar case

Wednesday, 18 September 2019 | PTI | Bengaluru

Karnataka Congress MLA Laxmi Hebbalkar has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate to appear before it in connection with the money laundering case against her senior party colleague DK Shivakumar, official sources said on Tuesday.

ED sources said the woman MLA, who represents Belagavi (Rural), has been asked to appear before its officials on September 19 in New Delhi. Hebbalkar confirmed receipt of the summons and said she had requested the ED to allow her to depose at her residence itself but the agency was yet to respond.

Yes, it is true. They (ED) have given me notice asking me to appear on September 19. I am talking to my advocate,” she told PTI.

Shivakumar, arrested by the ED on September 3 in a money laundering case, was on Tuesday remanded in judicial custody for 14 days till October 1 by a Delhi court.

The former minister was in the ED custody since his arrest. The agency had earlier summoned his daughter Aisshwarya in connection with the case.

It had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.
