Joint director of ED Raman Gupta said that the case registered against K J George is in the investigation stage. The ED has already gathered the property declaration details given by K J George from 1985 to 2019 to the Lokayukta. The officials will be conducting their investigation based on this data. 

In his complaint to the ED, Ravi Krishna Reddy has given the details of the property that K J George owns at Lafayette Street of Manhattan in New York. Ravi Krishna Reddy also mentioned that Renita Abraham and Kevin Abraham, daughter and son-in-law of K J George live in New York. 

Reacting to the case registered by ED, George said, "I have declared my property details with the Election Commission as well as Lokayukta. I am ready to give explanation even if ED asks for the same."

    Why ED targeting only Congress leader ? How about BJP leaders, they not involved in corruption. Ruling party misusing the ED.

    Since his children' s are NRI 's ( may be US citizens ) it s difficult to nail this Mallu.

    He is so smart that ill-gotten wealth kept in foreign countries definitely not in his name. In that case how can ED can prove this in court...????

    Our nation produced selfless leaders, only during early and post independence, in 1947 !! They lived, fought, for the liberation n glory of our motherland.. They gained very little for themselves and for their families.... disappeared without any accolades, into the pages of history.... Today leadership are ruthless business orientated, brutes, savages.... They are treacherous, to the core !!!! Dig their surface's and you will see skeletons tumbling out of their closets !!!!!!

    Most disheartening fact is in Karnataka and in particular inBangalore, with special emphasis to Congress party, the whole lot of corrupt and rich people are Malyalese(There are few more).

    They migrated to Karnataka started looting the forest of Karnataka made money in no time, joined Congress party, contributed to its kitty and rose like phoenix, which was a stepping stone to loot the Bangalore real estate market.Today the most richest people are George , Harris and DKS(he is a Kannadiga), all partners in the richest real estate companies of Bangalore.Harris as you all know of his sons dadagiri at UB city
