The Enforcement Directorate (ED) on Thursday questioned Karnataka Congress leader DK Shivakumar’s daughter Aishwarya in Delhi in connection with its money laundering probe against him, an official said.

The 22-year-old management graduate’s statement was recorded under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act and she was confronted with some documents and statements made by her father in ED custody, said the official.

She was asked about a business trip to Singapore that she had taken in 2017 along with her father.

Last week, the agency had informed a special court that it had recovered some sheets of paper from Shivakumar’s residence which mentioned cash payments of Rs 44 crore to different people between 2014 and 2016.

Shivakumar was arrested last Tuesday. He is accused of laundering money in the form of cash transactions.
