Bengaluru: The Directorate of Income Tax (Investigation), Karnataka & Goa, have reportedly unearthed huge amount of undeclared income worth over Rs 300 crore from several premises of the Energy Minister DK Shivakumar and his family members during the search and seizure operations at 64 locations in Delhi and Karnataka.

“The balance undeclared income of over Rs 200 crores, which was unearthed by the Income Tax sleuths, belongs to various business groups including a top real estate group and a transport firm, among others, where he allegedly has business investments,” said the sources.

The DGIT will take time to examine the documents to conclude the extent of his undeclared income, which were seized during the three day search operations. The Enforcement Directorate (ED) is likely to step in, to examine if there was a case of money laundering that attracted violation of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA).
