New Delhi, Sep 30 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Monday sought the Enforcement Directorate’s (ED) response on a plea filed by Congress leader D.K. Shivakumar seeking regular bail in a money laundering case against him.
Justice Suresh Kumar Kait while slating the matter for further hearing on October 14, asked the agency to submit a status report of the case.
The development comes after the Congress leader was denied bail last week by a trial court.
Shivakumar, who is currently lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail, was arrested by the ED on September 3 in connection with its probe into the charges of money laundering after questioning him for four days.
The arrest came after the Karnataka High Court rejected his plea for interim protection from the arrest.
