The Revenue Department carried out a raid on several locations in Mumbai that began early Wednesday. They were leading raids against actor Taapsee Pannu, filmmakers Anurag Kashyap and the residence of Vikas Bahl. Now, according to reports, the IT department is also raiding the residence of Reliance Entertainment CEO Shibasish Sarkar.

There are reports that the research is underway in 30 localities in Mumbai and Pune. Some celebrity executives and talent management firm KWAN are also under attack.

Reports indicate that the cyber raids are part of an alleged tax evasion against the Phantom films that was disbanded in 2018 and its then-promoters Anurag Kashyap, Vikramditya Motwane, Vikas Bahl and Madhu Mantena. Raids on the premises of Mantena are also organized for his links with KWAN of which he was a co-promoter.

Reports also indicate that some interrelated transactions between the wanted entities are under the department’s scanner and that raids are underway to gather evidence of their tax evasion investigation.
