Locations in Indore, Bhopal and Delhi (Green Park) were being raided and those being searched included Nath’s former Officer on Special Duty (OSD) Pravin Kakkad, former adviser Rajendra Miglani and executives linked to his brother-in-law’s firm Moser Bayer and his nephew Ratul Puri’s company. Both Kakkad and Miglani resigned from their posts just before the Lok Sabha polls were declared.
A team of about 200 IT department and police officers swooped down on these premises around 3 am and some undisclosed cash was recovered.
BJP’s national general secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya said “Black money worth crores was recovered during the Income Tax department’s raid at the house of private secretary of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath. This has made one thing clear that those who are thieves have a complaint against the watchman.”
MP Congress’ media cell vice president Bhupendra Gupta, also a former OSD to Nath, charged central government and said, “The BJP government has been targeting opposition leaders across the country due to political enmity. Due to such act of political vendetta, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister (N Chandrababu Naidu) and DMK leader M K Stalin had to stage protest against the Centre.”
