Reddy and his two associates, K Sreenivasulu and P Kumar, were later produced in a court which sent them to jail till March 28, they said. Reddy was earlier arrested by the CBI too in the same case of alleged black money generation post demonetization and was out on conditional bail. The ED too had arrested two other people in this case, Mahavir Hirani and Ashok Jain, in December last year.
The agency had filed a criminal complaint against Reddy and others based on a CBI FIR in the case which was registered after the I-T department first searched his and his associates’ premises in November, 2016. The I-T department has made one of the biggest detection of alleged unaccounted income of over 142 crore rupees in this case with the seizure of 34 crore rupees in new notes, post demonetization. http://bit.ly/Clipper28App
The Reddy case and the other involving Delhi-based lawyer Rohit Tandon are being probed by at least four agencies– the ED, the Income Tax department, the CBI and Delhi Police, and are considered the two most high-profile black money cases being investigated in the aftermath of the notes ban.
