Minutes before senior Congress leader DK Shivakumar was sent to Enforcement Directorate (ED) custody for nine days in a money laundering case on Wednesday, the party’s lead troubleshooter in Karnataka tweeted a seven-second clip, saying, “Political vendetta has become more stronger than law in India.”

A weary Shivakumar is seen sitting on a chair in a waiting area while making this statement a day after his arrest on Tuesday evening. Ahead of his arrest, Shivakumar was questioned in four sessions over the last 10 days by the ED in New Delhi.

This is the third tweet made by Shivakumar within 24 hours of his arrest. In his previous tweets, which came minutes after the arrest, the former state minister took a swipe at the BJP and accused the party of framing him in the ED and IT cases

“I congratulate my BJP friends for finally being successful in their mission of arresting me. The IT and ED cases against me are politically motivated and I am a victim of BJP’s politics of vengeance and vendetta,” DK Shivakumar had said in a tweet.
