The Income Tax department has indicted Shivakumar and his asociate SK Sharma of syphoning huge amount of unaccounted money on a regular basis via hawala conduit with the help of three other accused.
Previously, the ED had filed the money laundering case against DK Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, a staff at the Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi. The case was established on a charge sheet lodged by the IT department against them last year before a special court in Bengaluru on charges of tax evasion and hawala transactions.
