About the similarities with the case of Café Coffee Day founder VG Siddhartha Liquor tycoon Vijay Mallya on Wednesday tweeted, whose corpse was found on Wednesday after he alleged harassment by an income tax officials.
Siddhartha, the son-in-law of BJP leader SM Krishna, was under the scanner of the income tax department and Enforcement Directorate for alleged irregularities in his association with information technology company Mindtree Ltd.
Siddhartha said In the letter to directors of his company, there was a lot of harassment from a senior income tax department official in the order of connecting “our shares on two separate occasions to block our Mindtree deal and then taking position of our Coffee Day shares, although revised returns have been filed by us”.
The tax department has rebutted the businessman, listing some of the violations that had been detected by its officials that led to raids at premises linked to him and the subsequent attachment of his shares. The department said Siddhartha, in a sworn statement, “admitted” unaccounted income of Rs 362.11 crore and Rs 118.02 crore in his hands and that of Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd respectively.
his tweet says,
I am indirectly related to VG Siddhartha. Excellent human and brilliant entrepreneur. I am devastated with the contents of his letter. The Govt Agencies and Banks can drive anyone to despair. See what they are doing to me despite offer of full repayment. Vicious and unrelenting.
