IT Raids At Sonu Sood’s Office…
IT raids at this peoples’ Messiah Sonu Sood’s Offices in Mumbai ended last night after a massive 20-hour search by the IT officials. According to sources, the Department is investigating Mr. Sood’s & his company’s involvement in a property deal with a UP-based real estate company. This operations is based on allegations of a massive tax evasion on this deal, added sources.
On the other hand, the opposition has called this operation a witch hunt against the 48-year-old Bollywood actor who turned into a messiah spending crores to help people in need during the COVID times, may that be migration, ration or medication.
This actor, not just arranged buses, but even booked trains and even an entire flight to migrate people to their homes, stranded in different states across India. During the second wave, earlier this year, Sonu Sood was witnessed providing oxygen related helps to hospitals and peoples in need.
Notably, the raids came days after the Sonu Sood’s high profile meeting with Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. Kejriwal had declared Sonu Sood as the brand ambassador for “Desh Ka Mentor” a programme for school students in India, especially Delhi. And thus, Sood’s high profile meeting with CM Kejriwal triggered rumors of him joining the politics, probably in the upcoming Punjab elections as an AAP candidate..
In the meanwhile, the central party, BJP, however, has denied any political interventions in driving the raids forward.
