Central agency says Rs 57 lakh in cash, incriminating documents recovered
In the aftermath of Monday’s raids by the CBI on residences/offices of Karnataka Congress president DK Shivakumar, his brother, Member of Parliament DK Suresh, and associates, the central agency stated in a press note that it had “registered a case against a former minister of the Karnataka government (presently MLA) on allegations of possession of disproportionate assets to the tune of Rs.74.93 crore in his name and in the name of his family members.”
The press release goes on to say, “It may be recalled that the Government of Karnataka has issued a notification u/s 6 of the DSPE Act and it was followed by a notification u/s 5 of the DSPE Act issued by the Government of India, after which the CBI had initially registered a preliminary enquiry during March 2020 against the said MLA and others in the matter.”
The release adds, “Searches were conducted today at 14 locations, including Karnataka, Delhi and Mumbai, at the premises of the said MLA and others, which led to recovery of cash of Rs 57 lakh (approx) and several incriminating documents, including property documents, bank-related information, computer hard disks, etc.”
The CBI release says the “investigation is continuing”.
