Karnataka Congress President DK Shivakumar reappeared on Monday before the Delhi Enforcement Directorate for questioning in the National Herald money laundering case.
It is the second time the federal agency has made its statement in the case registered under the criminal sections of the Money Laundering Prevention Act (PMLA).
The 60-year-old former minister of Karnataka told reporters that he has provided all documents requested by the agency in connection with the investigation and that he has had to resubmit despite the request to postpone the subpoena.
He was last questioned by the ED in the case last month, after which he told reporters outside the agency’s office on APJ Abdul Kalam Road in central Delhi that he had been asked “many questions” about Young Indian, the company that owns the National Herald, his relatives and institutions associated with him.
Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and other prominent congressional leaders such as Mallikarjun Kharge and Pawan Bansal have been questioned by the ED in the National Herald money laundering case in recent months.
The Gandhis are the majority shareholders of Young Indian.
