Bengaluru: Members of the Vokkaliga community have decided to hold a massive protest march at Bengaluru on Wednesday opposing Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s arrest by the Enforcement Directorate.

It is gathered that the organizers of the event expecting thousands of people to join the march from the National College Grounds in Basavanagudi to the Raj Bhavan, where a memorandum will be presented to Governor Vajubhai Vala.

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.
