TAXMEN CLAIM DELHI MIN EVADED ₹120 CR IN TAX
The Income Tax department, which carried out search operations at premises belonging to Kailash Gahlot, on Saturday said it has found documents that show the Delhi Cabinet Minister had evaded tax worth ₹ 120 crore. “We have found evidence of tax evasion to the tune of ₹120 crore,” a senior Income Tax department official, requesting anonymity, told IANS. The amount of tax evasion by Gahlot is a “conservative” figure as of now, the official added. Documents recovered from the minister’s premises show office boys, peons and other employees to have been extended loans and to be holding equity worth ₹70 crore in several “shell” companies, the official added.
