IT Department has attached properties worth Rs. 1000 crore to Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar

NEW DELHI: Several allegedly benami properties belonging to Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister and prominent NCP leader Ajit Pawar and his family have been provisionally attached by the Income Tax Department.

The Income Tax Department has attached Maharashtra Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar’s five properties worth Rs. 1,000 crore, according to news agency ANI. Pawar’s office in Mumbai is one of these sites.

According to ABP News sources, the department has also attached a flat in South Delhi worth approximately Rs. 20 crore. Pawar’s office at Nirmal Tower is estimated to be valued Rs. 25 crore.

Jarandeshwar Sugar Factory, valued over Rs. 600 crore, and Nilaya, a Goa resort worth around Rs. 250 crore, have been attached by the I-T department.

There are 27 pieces of land across Maharashtra that have been attached, with a market worth of Rs. 500 crore.

Pawar’s sisters’ homes and businesses were raided by the IT department last month.

They raided at least 70 locations purportedly linked to Ajit Pawar and others in October, claiming at the time that they discovered proof of undeclared profits totaling Rs. 184 crore.

During simultaneous raids in Pune and Baramati, as well as Goa and Jaipur, the I-T department sleuths raided on two unnamed realty companies in Mumbai linked to Ajit Pawar’s family and other unidentified individuals/entities associated with them.

The investigators claimed to have obtained evidence of prima facie unaccounted for and ‘benami’ transactions, as well as incriminating records, from the two realty firms.
