Days after the Income-Tax Department conducted searches on the premises linked to Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, the agency on Saturday issued a statement, without naming him, claiming it had detected tax evasion of more than ₹20 crores so far.

The Income-Tax Department conducted a search and seizure operation on various premises of a prominent actor in Mumbai and also a Lucknow-based group of industries engaged in infrastructure development. A total of 28 premises spread over Mumbai, Lucknow, Kanpur, Jaipur, Delhi and Gurugram have been covered in the search operation,” it said.

According to the agency, during the searches on the premises of the actor and his associates, incriminating evidence pertaining to tax evasion was found. “The main modus operandi followed by the actor had been to route his unaccounted income in the form of bogus unsecured loans from many bogus entities,” said the Department. “Funds to the tune of ₹2.1 crores have also been raised by the charity foundation from overseas donors on a crowd-funding platform in violation of FCRA [Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act] regulations,” said the agency.
