In Ahmedabad, two big heads have come under the sway of the Income Tax department. The I-T Department conducted searches at bSafal group office and residential properties of builders Rajesh Brahmbhatt and Ashok Agarwal. Raids have been conducted at a total of 22 places in the city to examine unaccounted income.

Over 100 income tax officers are investigating the offices and residential properties of the board of directors of bSafal. Unlike the usual time of 6am, this time the raid began at 11am on Tuesday and it is still going on.

Rajesh and brother Rupesh Brahmbhatt’s residential place at Ram Baug, behind Karnavati Club on SG Highway, is under investigation.

Rajesh Brahmbhatt’s broker Pravin Baradia’s commercial properties are also raided by the I-T department. According to sources, the IT department had procured information on income tax theft carried out by these builders and brokers roughly a month ago. Construction is an unorganised sector and they have huge unaccounted income. That’s the reason even the earlier raids this month were carried out on the builders group.

On September 8, the Income-tax department raided the homes and offices of builders, as well as well-known brokers Deepak Ajit Kumar Thakkar and Yogesh Kanaiyalal Pujara.
