Tax raids at home of Bengal minister’s brother end after 72 hours

The IncomeTax raids on the residence of Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Swarup Biswas, the brother of West Bengal Minister Aroop Biswas, ended on Saturday after nearly 72 years.

The raids, which started on Wednesday, were carried out at five locations in Kolkata, including Swarup Biswas’s residence in the city’s New Alipore area and his wife Jui Biswas’s office, in connection to allegations of extortion, tax evasion and unaccounted wealth involving two construction companies.

Juin Biswas is a local Trinamool Congress councillor and also a party spokesperson.

According to sources, after the raids, the tax department also summoned Biswas on April 4 in connection with the case.

Biswas has also been asked to bring the balance sheet of his business establishments, bank statements and other documents with him during his appearance, sources added.

After the raids, Biswas claimed that the tax department’s sleuths could not seize a “single material or cash” from his house. Biswas further added that during the raids, he fully cooperated with the probe agency.
