The Enforcement Directorate has summoned Aishwarya, the daughter of Karnataka Congress leader D K Shivakumar, in connection with its money laundering probe against him, officials said on Tuesday.

They said Aishwarya has been asked to depose before the investigating officer of the case here on September 12.

It is expected that her statement will be recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act (PMLA) and she would be confronted with documents and statements made by Shivakumar with regard to a trip to Singapore he made with his daughter in 2017.
