Congress leaders Ahmed Patel, Anand Sharma and DK Suresh visited Tihar jail Thursday morning to meet Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar.
Shivakumar is currently lodged in the jail under judicial custody of the Enforcement Directorate.
A Delhi court on Wednesday dismissed Shivakumar’s bail plea. He was arrested in a money laundering case by the Enforcement Directorate.
The I-T department has accused Shivakumar and his alleged associate SK Sharma of transporting a huge amount of unaccounted cash on a regular basis through ‘hawala’ channels with the help of three other accused.
The ED had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at the Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.
The case was based on a charge sheet (prosecution complaint) filed by the Income Tax Department against them last year before a special court in Bengaluru on charges of alleged tax evasion and ‘hawala’ transactions worth crores.
