Kochi/New Delhi: A spe­cial team of in­come tax officers raided the Kochi house of Congress leader T Mathews Vargh­ese, who has been work­ing as cashier at the AICC head­quar­ters in Delhi for decades and is be­lieved to have been en­gaged in the party’s ma­jor fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions.

The raid on Vargh­ese’s house started at 10 am on Satur­day and con­tin­ued till late evening, reports Anan­tha K. On Fri­day, an­other team of 12 I-T officers had raided Vargh­ese’s house and seized some doc­u­ments. Congress claimed the tax­men raided five “or­di­nary em­ploy­ees” and called it a “new low” in vendetta pol­i­tics. “In­dia can’t be con­verted into a state where peo­ple are liv­ing in fear and in­se­cu­rity,” party leader Anand Sharma said.
