Mumbai : The Income Tax Department’s raid on Bollywood celebrities in Mumbai continues for the second consecutive day. Income tax department’s raid is going on at 22 locations in Mumbai and Pune. The office of Quan Talent Company, including director-producer Anurag Kashyap, actress Taapsee Pannu, director Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwani and Madhu Mantena, has been running red for the last 24 hours. Yesterday, Income Tax officials also questioned Anurag Kashyap and Tapasi in Pune in this case.
Why the Income Tax Department is raiding
The Income Tax Department had received the information that tax has been stolen in Anurag Kashyap’s Phantom Films. The exact amount of money that Phantom Films earned was not given. According to Income Tax Department sources, many electronic devices and documents were examined during the raid. The Income Tax Department wants to know how the tax evasion amount was distributed. What was purchased with this amount and whether this money was sent outside the country through money laundering. The team has so far captured some electronic devices. The Income Tax Department has seized four accounts of Madhu Mantena’s Quan Company.
Anurag’s third film ‘ Dobara ‘ with Taapsee
The raid also took place on Taapsee Pannu. She is not directly associated with Anurag Kashyap’s film, but is a close friend of Anurag and has worked in his films. Filhal Taapsee is working in Anurag’s ‘Dobara’ film. She has previously appeared in Anurag’s ‘Manmargiyaan’ and ‘Sand Ki Aankh’. According to IT sources, the purpose of the raid on their bases was to find out where the tax evasion money went.
Kashyap has openly opposed the policies of the Center
Politics has also started in this whole matter. Anurag Kashyap is very active on social media and has often openly opposed the policies of the Central Government. The BJP’s opponents are now raising questions about this action. Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole has said that the BJP government is taking revenge on these celebrities.
