Congress leader DK Shivakumar, who is accused of tax evasion was visited by Congress’s interim president Sonia Gandhi in Tihar jail on Wednesday morning. He was arrested on September 3 by the Enforcement Directorate for his alleged involvement in hawala transactions worth crores of rupees and has been in judicial custody since then.
Last year in September, a money laundering case was registered against the 57-year-old Congress leader by the Enforcement Directorate. Apart from Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee of Karnataka Bhavan, also came under ED’s radar.
Sonia Gandhi along with former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh had visited former Finance Minister P Chidambaram in jail.
