On Wednesday, tax officials had raided at least six premises linked to the actor. The raids ended late at night.
“A recent deal between Sonu Sood’s company and a Lucknow-based real estate firm is under the scanner,” unidentified officials had told NDTV. “The survey has been initiated on allegations of tax evasion on this deal.”
Opposition leaders criticised tax raids on the premises of the actor who won praises for his charity work during the coronavirus crisis.
The actor had organised special flights and buses for migrants stranded in cities due to the countrywide coronavirus-induced lockdown in April-May last year.
Sood had also arranged oxygen for Covid-19 patients during the devastating second wave of the pandemic in April and May this year.
Kejriwal had added: “There are millions of difficulties on the path of truth, but the truth always wins.”
