The agency had earlier summoned his daughter Aisshwarya in connection with the case and had recorded her statement. Three other alleged associates of Shivakumar have also been grilled by the ED. It had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.

The case was registered based on a charge sheet (prosecution complaint) filed by the Income Tax Department against them last year before a special court here on charges of alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions worth crores.
