New Delhi: Former Karnataka chief minister HD Kumaraswamy on Monday met Congress leader DK Shivakumar at the Tihar Jail in the national capital and called it a "personal visit".

Shivakumar is currently lodged in the jail under judicial custody in alleged connection with a money laundering case.

Speaking to media after meeting Shivakumar, Kumaraswamy said, "Political issues are different and personal equation is different. DK Shivakumar and I worked together in the coalition government... This is my personal visit. He is facing political vengeance; I was here to give confidence to him. He is mentally very strong and will fight all this."

Shivakumar was a cabinet minister in the Kumaraswamy-led Congress-JD(S) government in the state.

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi and senior party leader Ambika Soni are also likely to meet Shivakumar in Tihar Jail today.

Shivakumar was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate last month. He is currently in judicial custody in Tihar Jail in connection with a money laundering case.

The money laundering case was registered by the ED against Shivakumar in September last year, based on a complaint filed by the Income Tax (IT) department. The I-T department, during the initial probe, had allegedly found unaccounted and misreported wealth linked to Shivakumar.
