Twenty five locations in and around Delhi are currently being raided by Income Tax officials.
Among them, the office of senior BJP leader Sudhanshu Mittal, whose relatives were allegedly given major contracts for different aspects of the Commonwealth Games.
The massive charges of corruption that prefaced the Games are being investigated through a series of parallel inquiries by different agencies. The Prime Minister's Office has made it clear that those responsible for financial violations will be identified and held accountable.
On Monday, Income Tax officials visited the offices of the Organising Committee, headed by Suresh Kalmadi. Sources say financial documents linked to the broadcast rights for the Games are being studied for alleged tax evasion. The terms of the same deal -won by a London-based company - are also being examined. Early investigations allegedly show that the tax statements of the Indian office of that company show discrepancies in crores.
The channels used to pay the company are also being studied, and members of the Organising Committee are likely to be summoned soon for questioning.
On Monday, the Comptroller and Auditor General, Vinod Rai, formally announced a massive audit of the expenditure on the Games. Vowing to complete the audit within three months, Rai said that in addition to accountability, the report will determine whether the equipment and materials used for the Games justified the expenditure.
