Ajit Pawar’s properties worth Rs 1,000 crore attached by I-T Department

The Income Tax department has provisionally attached properties in Maharashtra, Delhi, and Goa allegedly linked directly and indirectly to Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar, officials aware of the matter said on Tuesday.

The action was taken after the department allegedly discovered unaccounted income of about ₹184 crore during searches it carried out at 70 premises of two Mumbai-based real estate groups, individuals, and entities allegedly linked to Pawar and his family in Mumbai, Pune, Baramati, Goa, and Jaipur last month. The department said incriminating documents, evidencing the unaccounted income were found during the raids.
