After eradicating corruption, AAP MLA keep this inside his house? IT finds Rs 130cr unaccounted money.
Recently we have reported that former Delhi Jal Board JE Kartar Singh Tanwar has unaccounted cash of hundreds of crores in his pockets and it turns out we are right after all. The Income Tax Department has found unaccounted income and investment worth Rs 130 crore of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Kartar Singh Tanwar sources informed NewsleakCentre on tuesday.
Earlier, The department has already seized unaccounted cash and jewellery of nearly Rs 1 crore from Tanwar and his brother. Tanwar has been questioned by the Income Tax Department twice in the recent past after the raid. Reacting to the raids, Tanwar alleged it was a political witch-hunt by the BJP-led Central government. But it was worth noting that, Tanwar was a BJP leader before he joined AAP in 2014.
Sources in the IT department said the recent raid revealed that transactions for buying farm houses in Chattarpur and Ghitorni were being done in cash by Tanwar and his associates. The sources also added that Tanwar was not paying stamp duty and registration fee on huge land transactions, thus allegedly cheating the Delhi government. Tanwar was fudging his book of accounts by showing money from land transactions as loans and advances in companies controlled by him. He had floated 30 to 35 companies for doing these transactions.
The department has also allegedly found a large number of documents showing unaccounted and benami properties. An assessment of the value of these transactions is being done. IT department is also investigating unexplained and unaccounted expenses on construction of a mall, residential houses, marriage expenses and farm houses having possibility of substantial tax evasion.
Former AAP Minister and Once close pal of Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan tweet about the issue and called Kartar Singh Tanwar as a Diamond candidate of Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant tweeted- “This JE,defector from BJP,now AAP MLA with 100sCr of disp wealth,whose ticket we objected to,was one of AKs Diamonds”.Earlier Prashant Bhushan has said that Arvind Kejriwal selects candidates who have more money and muscle power who can give party a hefty cut out of it. And this Kartan Singh news further proves Mr. Bhushan’s allegations.
