The income tax department is continuing its raids on properties and people associated with Karnataka energy minister D Shivakumar. 

The department raided his father-in-law's home on Thursday morning, ANI reported. 

ANI reported that the department also raided a residence in Delhi's Safdarjung area owned by Shivakumar. 




The income tax department had raided a number of Shivakumar's properties in Bengaluru and Delhi on Wednesday. 

The department also raided Shivakumar's room at the Eagleton Golf Resort in Bengaluru where the 44 Gujarat Congress MLAs are holed up. 

Shivakumar is responsible for the looking after of the Congress MLAs. 

The MLAs are holed up in Bengaluru because the party is worried they might defect should they be allowed to return to Gujarat. 

Six MLAs have already resigned from the Congress, with three of them joining the BJP. 

The Congress had reacted sharply to the raids, calling them a "witch hunt".
