BENGALURU: Income Tax Department officials have conducted a raid on the residence of a Congress leader who had unsuccessfully contested the last assembly election from CV Raman Nagar in the city.

The IT officials visited P Ramesh’s apartment in Ulsoor last week and verified documents related to his real estate business and papers related to his tax returns filed with the department. The Congress leader was not at home when the team of five officials visited his flat.

Ramesh is said to be close to several senior Congress leaders, including Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.

“It was not a raid, they visited my house to verify some papers. I was not at home at that time. Our Chartered Accountant provided all the details sought by the officials,” Ramesh told Express. “I file my tax returns every year and I think the officials visited my house to verify those details. They did not find anything wrong,” he added. Ramesh, who is an active member of the Congress, owns lands in Doddballapur and calls himself a ‘landlord.’
