Mr Krishna, a Congress veteran who was Chief Minister, union minister and governor, joined the BJP earlier this year.

Recent raids on state minister DK Shivakumar had the ruling Congress in Karnataka alleging political vendetta by the central government. This time, the raids are on the relative of a BJP leader.

84-year-old Mr Krishna's crossover from the Congress - his party for decades - to the BJP, signaled a big political move ahead of the Karnataka polls next year.
