IT raids

Income Tax (I-T) department officials on Wednesday night raided the house of Chitradurga JD(S) candidate K C Veerendra and seized Rs 11.48 lakh from his possession.

The house, at Taralabalu on the outskirts of the city, was raided by members of the vigilance team of the Election Commission at 10 pm. At 12 am, I-T officials raided the place and the operation went on till 4 am.

Veerendra later told a press conference that he had declared in the affidavit submitted with the nomination papers that he had Rs 15 lakh in hand. Yet, a conspiracy was hatched for the raids, done without serving a warrant, so as to divert his attention from the election campaign.
