The Enforcement Directorate has summoned the mother and wife of former minister D K Shivakumar for an inquiry in connection with the money laundering case against the Congress leader.
Confirming this, Shivakumar’s brother and Congress MP D K Suresh told reporters that the two will appear before the ED’s office in New Delhi and will answer all questions.
The ED asked Shivakumar’s mother Gowramma to appear before it on October 15 and his wife Usha on October 17.
Shivakumar, who was arrested on September 3 under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act ( PMLA), is in judicial custody. His judicial custody will end on October 15 and the ED will again produce him on Tuesday at the special court.
During Shivakumar’s bail hearing at a special court in Delhi, the ED alleged that Shivakumar, his family members and associates maintained more than 317 bank accounts in 20 banks and made high-value transactions.
