Tax Sleuths Unearth Cash Stashed Away In Tamil Nadu Warehouse
Days ahead of the April 18 elections, Income Tax sleuths on Monday said they found cash believed to be worth crores concealed in a cement godown belonging to an associate of a Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam leader in Vellore district.
Official sources told PTI that cash stuffed in cartons and gunny bags neatly packed for ward and division-wise distribution were unearthed by its investigation wing on Monday.
The development comes days after tax sleuths raided the premises belonging to DMK treasurer Durai Murugan and seized Rs 10.50 lakh in Vellore.
The sources said the seized cash was being counted and other details would be known later.
During searches at the residence of Durai Murugan on Saturday, printouts of details of some wards were seized, which was dismissed as junk by the assessee.
The cash found at the godown is suspected to have been shifted during the intervening night of March 29 and March 30 from a college, which was searched on March 30, the sources said.
