Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar moves High Court for bail

DK Shivakumar’s bail plea was dimissed by the trial Court on Wednesday.

DK Shivkumar, Karnataka Congress leader, on Thursday, moved to the Delhi High court seeking bail in the money laundering case charged against him by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).

The development comes a day after the Congress leader’s bail plea was rejected by the Bengaluru trial court. The trial court stated that the investigation is in its initial stage and since the accused is an influential person, the investigation can be further hampered if a bail is granted. The court also maintained that a balance has to be maintained between individual liberty and larger public interest.

DK Shivakumar was arrested last year in September for tax evasion and transportation of money through Hawala transactions.
