Income Tax department sleuths on Wednesday conducted searches at commercial establishments linked to BRS MLAs P Sekhar Reddy and M Janardhan Reddy and MP K Prabhakar Reddy in Hyderabad and at various locations in Telangana.
According to sources, the I-T officials conducted searches to verify tax payments of the firms belonging to the MLAs and the MP.
Media reports suggested that I-T searches were also conducted at some shopping malls belonging to Janardhan Reddy, who represents the Nagarkurnool Assembly constituency.
Prabhakar Reddy is a Medak Lok Sabha member while Sekhar Reddy is Bhongir MLA.
Meanwhile, speaking to the media on the raids, the Medak MP described them as “politically motivated”.
“To tarnish the image of the BRS party before the elections, the searches are being carried out. All our businesses are open and clean,” Reddy said.
