Income-Tax officials have carried out raids at 50 locations including the residence of Officer on Special Duty (OSD) to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath, Praveen Kakkar, in Bhopal, reported news agency ANI.
The report also said that the IT authorities had also raided 50 other locations including Indore, Bhopal, Goa and Delhi. It’s, however, not clear if the locations being raided belong to the same person or there are other individuals under the scanner of the IT authorities.
Kakkar is a former cop, who had joined the Congress after leaving the service. Kakkad has also been associated with former union minister Kantilal Bhuria, now an MP from Ratlam Jhabua in Madhya Pradesh. The Congress had ended the BJP’s 15 years of rule in the assembly elections held in December last year.
