After Chidambaram’s arrest, another prominent custodial act that too centre stage in national politics is Congress leader Shiv Kumar’s arrest over money laundering. After a few days of juridical remand, ED now wants to probe into his case further deeper to collect conclusive evidence.
In that manner, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has summoned Congress leader DK Shivakumar's daughter Aishwarya for questioning as part of its probe into the money laundering case. She has been asked to appear before the ED on September 12.
While scrutinizing the financial dealings of Shivakumar, the agency found documents about a trust handled by his daughter, said an ED official. The official said that if required, the agency would also confront Aishwarya with Shivakumar along with the financial transaction documents related to the trust.
The financial probe agency had arrested Shivakumar on September 3 after questioning him for over two days in connection with the case. A day later, a Delhi court sent Shivakumar to 10-day ED custody.
