Bangalore: The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided the premises of senior Congress leader, DK Shivakumar, on Monday in connection with the alleged corruption on allegations of acquisition of disproportionate assets against him.
CBI searched in 14 premises of chief DK Shivakumar and his brother and MP DK Suresh, including residences at Doddalahalli, Kanakapura and Sadashiva Nagar, in Bengaluru.
A total of Rs. 50 lakh has been recovered by CBI after the search.
Senior Congress leader, Randeep Singh Surjewala, criticised the Karnataka government and named the CBI a “puppet” of the BJP government.
“The insidious game of intimidation and machinations of Modi-Yeddyurappa duo being executed by a puppet CBI by raiding DK Shivakumar won’t deter us”, said Surjewala.
“CBI should be unearthing the layers of corruption in Yeddyurappa Govt. But, ‘Raid Raj’ is their only Machiavellian Move”, as he added further.

“BJP has always tried to indulge in vindictive politics and mislead public attention. The latest CBI raids on KPCC president DK Shivakumar’s house is another attempt to derail our preparation for by polls. I strongly condemn this”, he wrote on Twitter.
