MUM­BAI: The in­come tax de­part­ment con­ducted a sec­ond round of in­quiry into the al­leged shell com­pa­nies linked to Nitin Gad­kari’s Purti group on Tues­day.

Gad­kari, who, by the end of the day had pulled out of the BJP pres­i­den­tial race, con­demned the fresh in­quiries as “cal­cu­lated, mis­chievous and po­lit­i­cally mo­ti­vated”.

The I-T de­part­ment’s act “smacks of the rul­ing UPA’s ne­far­i­ous de­signs to cre­ate con­fu­sion in the BJP ranks,” he said.

Back in Oc­to­ber, 22 al­leged shell com­pa­nies were un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion. This time, 24 com­pa­nies were un­der the I-T scan­ner.
