The central agency had in September last year registered the money laundering case against Shivakumar, Haumanthaiah, an employee at Karnataka Bhavan in New Delhi, and others.

The case has been filed based on a charge sheet (prosecution complaint) filed by the Income Tax Department against him early last year before a special court here on charges of alleged tax evasion and Hawala transactions worth crores.
