CBI raids the National Education Foundation and conducted verification of documents
On Monday the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) conducted raids on an educational institution owned by Karnataka Congress president D K Shivakumar in Bengaluru.
Shivakumar is the chairman of the institute and his daughter Ishwarya is the secretary.
The National Education Foundation located in Rajarajeshwarinagar in Bengaluru was raided by the CBI and conducted verification of documents.
Alleging that the CBI is hounding his family, Shivakumar stated that CBI has conducted raids on his educational institution, and probing their land and business is ongoing.
“All probing agencies have lodged complaints and conducted investigations. CBI officers have issued notices to my partners and relatives and got the information. I have not done anything wrong and I don’t fear,” Shivakumar stated.
“I will believe in the judiciary and God. BJP MP V Srinivasprasad has spoken about money transactions during operation lotus carried out by BJP. Srinivasa Prasad stated that money was given to BJP MLC H Vishwanath. There are statements on making payments of Rs.5 to 6 crore for the post of the Governor. Mysuru-Kodagu MP Pratap Simha has also given a similar statement. The investigating agencies have not issued any notices to them. No one is questioning even as a huge money transaction is discussed,” Shivakumar reacted angrily.
Shivakumar stated that the agencies are being used to snub Congress leaders. Earlier, notice was issued for gifting of mobiles, he said.
