Bengaluru: In a curious turn of events, Belagavi Rural MLA Lakshmi Hebbalkar has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). She has been summoned in connection with the same money laundering case for which Congress leader D K Shivakumar is currently in judicial custody. Hebbalkar and DKShi are known to be close associates.
She has been asked to appear for an inquiry on September 19.
According to sources, the ED has summoned the Congress MLA based on records of money transfer between DKShi and her accounts.
MLA Hebbalkar has confirmed that she received the summons and assured that she will cooperate with the law enforcement agency.
