New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Monday issued a notice to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) on the bail application moved by senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar in a money laundering case filed by the probe agency under Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) Act.
Justice Suresh Kait will hear the matter on 14 October.
A special court had, last Wednesday, dismissed the Congress leader’s bail application.
Shivakumar had been remanded to judicial custody and will be produced in the special court on Tuesday.
The Congress leader was arrested by the ED on 3 September after four days of interrogation.
The ED had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar and a few others. The case was based on a charge sheet filed by the Income Tax Department last year before a special court in Bengaluru on charges of alleged tax evasion and unaccounted transactions worth crores of rupees.
In August 2017, the IT department had raided several premises owned by the Congress leader, his family, and associates and had claimed to have unearthed crores of rupees in unaccounted for income.
Multiple agencies have been probing Shivakumar’s assets for almost two years now.
