Plea by DK Shivakumar’s relative: Karnataka HC orders notice to state, centre and CBI | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: The high court has ordered notice to both state and central government as well as the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in response to a writ appeal filed by S Shashi Kumar, a close relative of KPCC president DK Shivakumar.
Shashi Kumar,who works as chief manager with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited ( HAL) has challenged July 22 order of the single bench dismissing his petition.
In the said petition, he had questioned the September 25, 2019 order of the state government granting permission to the CBI to inquire/investigate into all purported violations of the provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988 by DK Shivakumar and other officials of Karnataka government vis-a-vis money laundering case.
In the report sent to the state government on September 9, 2019, wherein consent for CBI probe was sought, the enforcement directorate had said that Shashi Kumar was found to be involved in property transactions on behalf DK Shivakumar.
Shashi Kumar contends that he is not an accused in any of the cases involving DK Shivakumar and because of mere reference in ED report, the sanction has been recorded,which is not proper in law.According to him,proceedings in three of those cases have already been quashed and have attained finality.
The single bench had dismissed Shashi Kumar’s petition holding that when a state government accords consent for CBI probe under the Delhi Special Police Establishment Act,1946, it is only an administrative order and does not require enormous rejigging about the issue on hand.
