Gupta vehicles impounded
The Gupta family’s vehicle fleet recently came into the spotlight when the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) revealed more than 100 vehicles owned by them have been confiscated. These include luxury models of Bentley and Maserati.
A Bentley Continental GT worth about R3-million, a Maserati Quattroporte worth R1,1-million and a Lamborghini Gallardo are some of the most expensive vehicles on the list.
Independent Media reported that Atul Gupta splurged on a red Maserati for his 18-year-old son when he matriculated.
Outa revealed that other vehicles registered to companies associated with the Guptas, including Sahara and TNA Media Head Office, were also impounded. The whereabouts of the vehicles are unknown at this stage, as the Hawks continue with their investigations into Gupta family dealings.
“Those involved must all go to jail,” said Outa’s portfolio director for transport, Ben Theron. “Not only are they stealing tax money, they are ruining people’s lives.”
