The Income Tax Department on Wednesday (March 3) conducted raids at the premise of Bollywood actress Taapsee Pannu, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and others as part of their probe into a ‘Tax evasion’ matter. The I-T department detected financial irregularities of over 300 crores after it raided the properties of a leading B-town actress, two talent management companies and two production houses, the Central Board of Direct Taxes said in a statement.
Now, Kangana Ranaut who has been vocal about her opinions on Twitter has reacted to the news in a series of tweets. She wrote, “They are not just #TaxChor huge transactions of black money has happened, did they get that money for provoking #Shaheenbagh riots or #republicdayviolence… From where the black money came and where did they send the black money which isn’t accounted for?”
Her next tweet read, “Kwan agency and Phantom production house were the prominent accused in #MeToo many rape allegations/ cases on them but Bullydawood protected them, people like Anurag Kashyap are not only rape accused but they also tried to justify Shushant’s death, who all think its divine justice.”
Calling the celebs under investigations as Tax Chor, she tweeted, “Every minute the numbers are rising, this is only the money they found clues for, one can only imagine what could be the actual numbers of money laundering, have been exposing terrorism racket of tukde gang in the underbelly of Bollywood, these are terrorists not just #TaxChor”
Meanwhile, the agency is carrying out searches in not just Mumbai and Pune but also in Delhi and Hyderabad. A total of 28 premises are being covered in different locations, which include residences and offices.
