Over Rs. 4 crore in cash was found by Income Tax officials after they raided multiple places linked to former Karnataka Deputy Chief Minister G Parameshwara and his associates yesterday, the agency said this morning.
Around 30 places linked in Bengaluru and Tumakuru linked to the senior Congress leader were searched. The tax department is continuing with the searches this morning as well.
The house of Mr Parameshwara’s brother’s son, Anand, and Siddhartha Medical College are being searched by the tax department today. The college is run by a trust related to the former minister.
Mr Parameshwara had said he is not aware of the searches and that he is ready to “rectify” if there is any fault from his end.
