He asked us why we are carrying out an operation in his area without his permission,” Verma told media. He said that Madhya Pradesh Police’s SHO Chouhan and DSP misbehaved with CRPF and hurled abuses at them. “Since the matter has gone to a higher level, if I am asked about it, I will definitely tell them,” Verma added.

After the raids in Madhya Pradesh, Income Tax officials have detected a racket of collection of unaccounted cash through various persons, including businessmen, politicians and bureaucrats. The amount of such unaccounted case detected so far is Rs 281 crore. Unaccounted cash of ₹ 14.6 crores also has been found so far in the raids, along with liquor bottles, arms and hide skins of the tiger.

The residence of SM Moin in Delhi, who is a senior functionary of Congress, was raided by the Income Tax department. Moin is under the scanner for receiving Rs 20 crore from Bhopal, and the raid was done pertaining that transfer.

Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel rushed to the residence of Moin in Delhi when I-T officers were conducting search operations there. According to the website of the Congress party, SM Moin is the Administrative Officer of AICC. Therefore, it can be presumed that the major political party mentioned in the CBDT release is the Congress party.

A press release issued by the CBDT said that a part of this amount was transferred to the head office of a major political party located at Tughlaq Road in Delhi, which included Rs 20 crore transferred through hawala route. This amount was moved through a senior functionary of the party.
