Congress has called these raids an "attempt to derail our preparation for bypolls" in Karnataka. 

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) raided Congress stalwart DK Shivakumar’s residence in the early hours of Monday. CBI officials are conducting raids in 15 locations across Karnataka, Mumbai and Delhi in connection with an alleged corruption case against Shivakumar.

A separate team has raided his younger brother and Bengaluru Rural MP DK Suresh’s house, while a team has gone to their village in neighbouring Kanakapura taluk.

According to reports, the CBI conducted the raid after the state government gave a prosecution consent to raid him in connection with an alleged money laundering case.

The alleged corruption case was registered by the CBI based on the inputs shared by the Enforcement Directorate over a money laundering probe. "CBI has registered a case against then Minister of Karnataka Government and others on the allegations of acquisition of disproportionate assets. Searches are being conducted today at 14 locations including nine in Karnataka, four in Delhi, and one in Mumbai," the probe agency said this morning in a statement.
