Bengaluru: Tax of­fi­cials on Thurs­day raided ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions owned by for­mer Kar­nataka deputy chief min­is­ter G Paramesh­wara and for­mer Union min­is­ter R L Jalappa, both Con­gress­men, in a multi-crore tax eva­sion case linked to this year’s NEET.

The raids cov­ered 30 premises across Kar­nataka and Ra­jasthan. Congress termed the ac­tions “BJP’s ven­detta”. I-T of­fi­cials at­trib­uted the raids to a case of al­leged forgery and il­le­gal pay­ments made to se­cure 186 seats by 68 stu­dents from Ra­jasthan. They seized Rs 2 crore in cash and prop­erty pa­pers.

Parmesh­wara said he had no ob­jec­tion to the raids.
