IT Department seizes jewellery worth over Rs. 2 crores and Rs. 37 lakh in cash from AAP Minister Kailash Gehlot

I-T officials had earlier claimed that they found documents showing the Delhi Cabinet Minister evaded Rs 120 crore in taxes.

The I-T Department has seized unaccounted jewellery worth Rs. 28 lakhs from a locker in the name of Delhi minister Kailash Gahlot and his wife. The total seizure amounts to Rs. 2 crore of jewellery and cash of Rs. 37 lakhs.

“We have recovered cash worth Rs. 37 lakh and jewellery of about Rs. 2 crore from the residence and business premises of Gahlot and his family members during the raids conducted in the second week of this month,” Department spokesperson Subhi Ahluwalia told the IANS.

Earlier this month, the Income Tax Department on Wednesday had conducted raids on multiple premises associated with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi minister Kailash Gahlot in connection with an alleged tax evasion case. The IT officials had conducted searches in at least 16 locations in Delhi and Gurgaon. Reportedly, the places linked to the AAP leader were raided by a team of 30 Income tax officials. I-T officials had earlier claimed that they found documents showing the Delhi Cabinet Minister evaded Rs 120 crore in taxes.

The documents recovered from the minister’s premises showed office boys, peons and other employees were extended loans and held equity worth Rs. 70 crore in several “shell” companies.

Kailash Gahlot is the minister for transport, law and revenue in Arvind Kejriwal’s cabinet. He represents Najafgarh Assembly constituency in the Delhi Legislative Assembly.
