Income Tax probe at minister Rajendra Singh Yadav’s properties on for 2nd day | Jaipur News – Times of India

JAIPUR: The Income Tax department continued its investigation at premises linked to the minister of the state Rajendra Singh Yadav for the second consecutive day across different places in Jaipur.
The I-T teams are currently examining documents and other materials recovered for the investigation. The search operation had begun on Wednesday early morning and continued till late at night.
The teams continued their searches at different premises on Thursday at multiple locations in different cities including Jaipur. The department has not divulged details of seizures yet, nor has it confirmed if they have come across any tax anomalies. The sources said that other business firms and their premises were also searched.
Sources said that their probe into the case was still underway with important documents being examined. The I-T had launched a major operation which included nearly 250 officers conducting simultaneous searches in different cities including Jaipur, and in Uttarakhand.
When the minister was asked whether the searches were chiefly related to the alleged irregularities in the midday meal scheme, the minister said if someone was doing it, he was neither aware nor had anything to do with it.
“We have a packaging business. We mainly manufacture sacks for grains and fertilizers,” Yadav said on Wednesday.
A two-time MLA from Kotputli in Jaipur, Yadav’s family owns Rajasthan Flexible Packaging Limited which is in his constituency area.
Yadav was made minister of state for home and justice, with independent charge of higher education, planning, motor garage, language and library.
The minister has maintained that his father was in the business from the 1950s. He claimed that he also managed the business before he entered politics and now the business is looked after by his son and brother.
