New Delhi/ Bengaluru: The Enforcement Directorate carried out searches at the residence of a close aide of Former Minister and Congress leader DK Shivakumar in Delhi on Monday.

Anjaneya Hanumanthaiah, a close aide of Shivakumar works as a liaison officer in Delhi’s Karnataka Bhawan. During the probe, it was found that he was a close associate of Congress leader DK Shivakumar.

Apart from Anjaneya, the ED officials have also recorded statements of Sunil Kumar Sharma of Sharma Transport.

DK Shivakumar, arrested in a money laundering case, was sent to the ED custody till September 13 by a Delhi court on September 4.

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

Shivakumar had to appear before the ED after Karnataka High Court last week dismissed his petition challenging the summons issued to him by the agency.

The ED had filed the PMLA case against him and others based on a charge sheet (prosecution complaint) filed by the Income Tax Department against them last year before a special court in Bengaluru on charges of alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions worth crores.

The I-T department has accused Shivakumar and his alleged associate S K Sharma of transporting huge amount of unaccounted cash on a regular basis through ‘hawala’ channels with the help of three other accused.
