Did IT officials find anything during raids?Published: October 1, 2015
The raids by Income Tax officials on the premises of Vijay, Samantha, Nayanthara and others became the talk of the industry on Wednesday. “At the end of the raids, some crucial documents related to money transactions were obtained,” sources said.
Meanwhile, tense moments prevailed for some time at Samantha’s residence at Pallvaram in Chennai, as her family members allegedly prevented media persons from doing their work.
Speaking to reporters later, the actress’ father Joseph Prabhu said his daughter is prompt in paying Income Tax and she has regularly been filing her returns. “She is currently in abroad for shooting,” he added.
The raids, which came just one day ahead of the release of Vijay-starrer ‘Puli’, sent ripples in the industry and among Vijay fans. Raids were conducted at 32 places in Chennai, Hyderabad, Madurai and Kochi.
“Officials simultaneously raided these places. Vijay’s house, resort and office, Nayanthara’s house in Kochi, S A Chandrasekar’s residence and other places were brought under scrutiny,” sources said.
