Sonu Sood finally breaks his silence after the tax evasion raid. Sonu Sood released a statement on his social media on Monday. Later in the day, he also addressed reporters about the tax survey.
"Everything is in process and front of everyone. We've given all details to everyone. They'll do their job and I'll do mine. I'll even become a brand ambassador if you call me in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Punjab," Sood said addressing a bunch of reporters outside his residence in Mumbai.
The survey took part after weeks of him joining hands with Delhi Chief Minister Aravind Kejriwal. He said that he gets the funds through an endorsement fee. "We're teaching students across the country. If any govt will call me, I'm there for them. In my foundation, the maximum funds we get is through my endorsements fee & it takes time to spend them. Not even a single penny has come to my account," he further said to the reporters.
The Income Tax Department has accused Sonu Sood of alleged financial irregularities. Reportedly, these irregularities range up to over Rs 250 crore. According to officials, Sonu Sood did this through unutilized charitable funds. This includes fraudulent contracts and circular transactions across India.
According to reports, IT has alleged roughly Rs 20 crore in unutilized funds collected through donations. Further Rs 65 crore in bogus contracts added to that. Rs 175 crore in dubious circular transactions with a company is also added to that.
