I-T raids continue for second day against people linked to CM Kamal Nath

Tuesday, April 09, 2019

New Delhi/Bhopal: The Income-Tax Department raids against close aides of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath and others continued yesterday with search teams making seizures of documents and cash, officials said.

Officials said the searches, on charges of alleged tax evasion and hawala transactions during the ongoing poll season, are continuing at various premises in Bhopal, Indore and in Delhi and national capital region as tax sleuths are gathering details and evidences.

While there is no official word on the exact amount of cash seized, sources said over Rs 10 crore suspected cash has been seized till now.

At least half-a-dozen people, linked to alleged hawala dealer Paras Mal Lodha, are being questioned by the department.

The department had launched pre-dawn raids at 52 locations on Sunday on people and associates linked to Nath.

Sources had told PTI that there is a "strong possibility" of the cash recovered during the operation being used as an election inducement to fund political campaigns and bribe voters in the poll-bound state and in Delhi.

A preliminary report of the raids was also shared by the department with the Central Board of Direct Taxes and the Election Commission in Delhi.

A cash van with large-sized trunks has been sent by the department at a location in Bhopal to seize and collect the cash found during the raids, they said.
