Lok Sabha elections: Income tax officials conduct searches at Kanimozhi’s Tuticorin residence – Times of India

CHENNAI: Income tax officials as well as static and flying squads carried out searches at the residence of DMK leader Kanimozhi — who is the party’s candidate in Tuticorin Lok Sabha constituency — on Tuesday evening, based on information that cash was stored there, an I-T official said.

However, sources said that the department did not find anything at her house.

“On the information shared by local administration, Income Tax Department searched premises related to DMK’s Kanimozhi in Thoothukudi. Verification is on. Kanimozhi was there and she cooperated with the team. The department found nothing,” reported news agency ANI quoting sources.

The officials entered the Rajya Sabha member’s Kuringi Nagar residence in Tuticorin, a few hours after the campaign for the April 18 elections came to an end in Tamil Nadu.

“We received information from Tuticorin collector that the upper portion of the residence is being used for storing cash. Based on the information from the collector, we entered the residence along with two squads. We are only checking whether any money is being stored there,” a senior income-tax investigation official had said.

Nearly 10 officials from income-tax department and flying and static squads were part of the team.
