As per reports, the show cause notice was served on Monday after Congress failed to submit some documents related to flow of unaccounted funds from Hyderabad-based infrastructure company.
Reportedly, during the recent raids, the Income Tax Department has found that the Hyderabad-based infrastructure company has sent about Rs 175 crore to Congress through hawala transaction. These funds were reportedly siphoned out through government projects through bogus billings.
Hyderabad-based company Megha Infrastructure Ltd reportedly sent black money donations to Congress. Congress is yet to respond to these allegations.
