Reportedly former karnataka Minister and congress troubleshooter DK Shivakumar was granted bail by the delhi high court on Wednesday, in connection to a money laundering case against him and hence he has to furnish a bond of Rs 25 lakh and cannot leave the country without the trial court’s permission.
Meanwhile the development comes just after congress Interim President sonia gandhi visited the former karnataka water resource minister in Tihar jail. Furthermore Shivakumar has been in custody since September 3, 50 days after he was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate and his previous applications for bail were rejected by the trial court. Meanwhile his police custody ended on September 19, he was remanded to judicial custody till October 1 by the Rouse Avenue court.
Perhaps he was reportedly lodged in the same jail compound as former Finance Minister P chidambaram and further the ED had been probing accusations of money laundering registered against DK Shivakumar since August 2017, when a cash amount of Rs 8.86 crore was found at his New delhi residence. Moreover allegations against DKS include that he, along with his associates, transferred unaccounted money through hawala transactions to the congress top brass.
