For the second consecutive day, the Income Tax Department continued its ‘survey’ operations at the home of Bollywood actor Sonu Sood, official sources said here on Thursday.
A team of IT sleuths swooped on the 48-year-old Sood‘s Juhu home to carry out search operations to detect certain alleged financial irregularities.
The IT department is examining bank statements, books of accounts, documents and details of financial or other business transactions during the ‘survey’, for suspected tax evasion, though no details are being shared officially.
In Wednesday’s operations, the IT had searched around half a dozen premises linked to the actor, including offices and other properties in Mumbai and certain locations in Lucknow.
Sonu Sood shot into the limelight last year (2020) for arranging free flights or luxury buses for stranded migrants during the lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic and sent them to different parts of India, besides organizing liquid medical oxygen supplies to various hospitals during the second Covid wave this year (2021).
