Chandigarh: Haryana BJP’s Chief media coordinator Suraj Pal Amu is in trouble for announcing reward beyond his known source of income. According to a ANI news report, Mr. Amu while congratulating some Meerut youth for announcing 5 crore for beheading Deepika and Bhansali , upped his rate chart to 10 crore without realizing it could land him in trouble.
He has got a notice from Income Tax department asking on what ground he declared such a huge reward for doing such a cowardice act.
While speaking to us, Anil Kadian, an Income Tax officer under whose jurisdiction Mr. Amu falls, said “I am sure Police will do whatever needs to be done. I have done what is in my capacity. He might have thought being Sunday we are not active, he can say whatever he wants to say. Quickly looked for his past income tax returns. Like many politicians he has never filed income tax return.”
Mr. Kadian added, “Then I asked my team to check election commission websites and gather information from the ground on the assets he has. As he has linked his PAN card with Aadhaar it was not difficult for us to find details. Our assessment says his known source income including the assets he holds today in India is less than the 10 percent of the reward money he has declared.”
“Even with the assets he holds now and his current source income, he should be filing income tax return. We have sent a notice to him asking why he has not done so. We have also told him to fill which ITR form in case he holds some foreign assets which he wants to liquidate for the reward he has talked about,” said Mr. Kadian.
Mr. Amu who has challenged Modi for being silent on this issue, said, “The action against me is because I have criticized PM on this issue. Next, they might put a CBI case against me. I am not bothered. Will break legs whoever speaks in favor of the movie”.
