Delhi:  DK Shivakumar, the Congress’s troubleshooter in Karnataka, has been freed from Delhi’s Tihar Jail on a Rs. 25 lakh bail bond. Mr Shivakumar, who faces allegations of money laundering running into crores of rupees, cannot leave the country, the Delhi High Court said today. Justice Suresh Kait, while granting bail to Mr Shivakumar, said he is not a flight risk. The judge said Mr Shivakumar cannot tamper with evidence as the documents are with the investigating agencies and there is no material to show he has influenced witnesses. He was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate in September and sent to Tihar Jail, where another Congress leader P Chidambaram is lodged in a separate alleged corruption case.
