Enforcement Directorate (ED) has sent a notice to DK Shivakumar’s daughter Aishwarya in connection with the money laundering case against the former Karnataka Minister.

According to reports, she has been asked to appear before the ED on September 13. The other two accused who have been named as associates in the case are Sunil Kumar Sharma, owner of Sharma Transport; Rajendra N, an employee of Sharma Transport; and Shivakumar’s business associate Sachin Narayan.

The official said that while scrutanising the financial dealings of Shivakumar, the agency found documents pertaining to a trust handled by his daughter.

The ED had filed the PMLA case against him and others 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.

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.

Shivakumar has been on the radar of the Income Tax Department and the ED since demonetisation in 2016. An Income Tax search at his New Delhi flat on August 2, 2017 led to the seizure of unaccounted cash worth Rs 8.59 crore.
