Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s ED custody extended till Sept 17

A Delhi court on Friday extended Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody till September 17 in a money laundering case. Shivakumar, who was arrested on September 3 by the ED, was produced before the court on the expiry of his 9-day custodial interrogation.

Earlier in the day, the probe agency sought a five-day extension of custodial interrogation, saying Shivakumar was evasive in his replies and gave irrelevant answers during the interrogation, reported news agency PTI.

On Thursday, the ED questioned Shivakumar’s daughter Aishwarya in Delhi in connection with its money laundering probe against him, an official had said. She was asked about a business trip to Singapore that she had taken in 2017 along with her father.
