Karnataka Lokayukta asks DK Shivakumar to submit documents in disproportionate assets case

| @indiablooms | 11 Apr 2024, 12:34 am

Bengaluru/IBNS: The Karnataka Lokayukta has asked Deputy Chief Minister DK Shivakumar to submit documents in connection with an investigation involving the disproportionate assets case against him.

The case was transferred to the Lokayukta after the Siddaraimah government withdrew the consent to probe conducted by the central agency, issued by the earlier BJP government.

"There has been a CBI case against you. The case has been transferred to the Lokayukta. During the CBI investigation you have submitted information and documents. Do submit the same documents and information to Lokayukta too," read the notice to Shivakumar.

Shivakumar has been accused of amassing assets worth Rs. 74.93 crore disproportionate to his income.

Shivakumar has denied any wrongdoing and said he would fight the case "legally".

He accused the BJP of harassing him by misusing central agencies.

Citing the wrong procedure, the Siddaramaiah government withdrew consent for investigation after coming to power. The CBI has challenged the retraction in the High Court, which is hearing the case.
