Sunday 3pm IST ‘Yaksha Rasa’
Bengaluru, Nov 21 (IANS): Just 48 hours after his daughter’s engagement, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) gave a shock by issuing summons to Karnataka Pradesh Congress Committee (KPCC) President D. K. Shivakumar to appear before the agency for questioning on November 23.
Speaking to the media and confirming receiving the summons Shivakumar said, « The CBI investigators had come with the summons to my house on November 19, but I wasn’t at home. They have asked me to come at 4 p. m. on November 23. «
He added that he had written to the CBI stating that he would be in Basavakalyan and Maski on that day for election campaigning. « I have requested them if I can appear before them for questioning on November 25 instead of November 23, » he said.
The CBI registered an FIR against Shivakumar on October 2 stating that he was allegedly in possession of disproportionate assets worth Rs 74. 93 crore.
The CBI alleged that these assets belong to him and his family members. On October 5, the CBI conducted a search and seizure operation at 14 properties belonging to Shivakumar, including in Karnataka, Delhi and Mumbai.
The CBI had recovered Rs 57 lakh and several allegedly incriminating documents from these properties including bank statements and hard drives. The recovery of Rs 57 lakh was contested by both Shivakuamr and his younger brother and Bengaluru Rural Lok Sabha member, D. K. Suresh.
In September 2019, the Karnataka government had granted permission to the CBI to launch a probe against Shivakumar. Subsequently, the Union government too had granted permission after which the CBI began its probe in March 2020 against Shivakumar and his associates.
The CBI’s investigation began after the Enforcement Directorate shared information related to his finances with the agency. The ED is currently probing a money laundering case against Shivakumar. He had been arrested in September 2019 and was in Tihar Jail for 51 days before the Delhi High Court granted him bail.
The ED had accused Shivakumar of laundering black money through various proxies including his family members and close associates.
Why wasting so much time on him. Use legal system to put him behind bars for rest of the life. Set a good Lesson to all those corrupt Ministers both ruling and opposition. I Hind.
There are so many corrupt MP and MLAs in BJP why CBI don’t raid them . This the only weapon they have to bring Congress down by corrupt BJP government one day it will be turn around .
JoeWait and see what happens to one by one currupt persons of political or generalAb MODI aur SHAH ka time hai. See how Chidambaram was put behind bar for such a long time. DKC too was in that same jail.
Nothing will happen to him, in India the political class is above law, just show me one politician procecuted for corruption, that is the resign none of them resign from politics.
Since our independence, how many Netas, have been prosecuted for scams, frauds and scandals ??? Even those who are held guilty of gross abuse, escape Rigorous imprisonment n are hold up, in luxurious sanatorium or government guesthouses !!!
Kudos to the BJP government at the state and the center for the quick action to grant permission for sanctions against DK . It sure feels that they have cleaned all their stables of all such members who undoubtedly have much more. Does the ED and the Income Tax departments find illegal assets only in the opposition ? The best thing would be to join. All problems solved
Only jealous people do like this. Once raided. Again and again what. They do not have job so they want to be busy so they are troubling the person who is climbing up.
Summons issued to present before the agency for questioning and clarification, this is not raiding . . . . If anybody is troubled can approach the court against the summons . . . . . Stop supporting the corrupt, bhagwan se daro . . . . The fear of the lord is the beginning of wisdom . . . .
Corruption is everywhere. If poor people go to the police station or govt offices their complaint will not have value. If builders or rich people or high positioned people go to police station or govt office they have great value, honour everything. 25% Indians have unaccounted money with them. Govt raids only selected people. That too again and again raiding or troubling whoever it may be may not be fare. They had to search fresh prey.
What do you mean by raiding again and again? The summons issued for the raids conducted earlier. If the person is clean and honest why he should be afraid? Why DKC wants to stop the summons? Daal me kuch kaalana hi pura daal kala hai. Do you know Hiw much worth DJCniw and some 25 years back? Increase in his wealth between 2013 to 2018 itself is more than 800 crores that too official wealth and he only knows the un acvount Ed one. And whoke khangress blams MODI for no development since 2014 if that is the case how this DKC increased wealth?
