NO BREAK­THROUGH AS TAXMEN CON­TINUE RAIDS ON DAY-TWO

Deccan Chronicle - - POLITICS - COREENA SUARES | DC HY­DER­ABAD, OCT. 13

The in­come-tax raids against TD MP, Mr C.M. Ramesh, a close aide of AP Chief Min­is­ter N. Chandrababu Naidu, con­tin­ues on Day 2 (Sat­ur­day). The tax­man did not ar­rive at any break­through in the case that was reg­is­tered fol­low­ing sus­pi­cion over large-scale tax eva­sion.

Sources said the I-T de­part­ment had is­sued a no­tice to Mr Ramesh’s wife, seek­ing more in­for­ma­tion about the al­leged tax vi­o­la­tions. Also on day-2, the taxmen were un­able to open the lock­ers as they are all bio­met­ric en­abled and it would need Mr Ramesh’s fin­ger­prints to open it. In re­sponse to the call of the I-T de­part­ment, Mr Ramesh agreed to open the lock­ers, how­ever in pres­ence of the me­dia. Re­port­edly no cash or doc­u­ments were seized on the sec­ond day of searches.

A flut­ter was cre­ated on Fri­day, when 12 teams from I-T de­part­ment raided the res­i­dence of Mr Ramesh in Ju­bilee Hills, and the of­fice of Rith­wik Projects Pri­vate lim­ited in Ban­jara Hills, of­fices in Delhi and his na­tive place Prod­datur in Kadapa district.
