S K Srivastava, a Commissioner of Income Tax, New Delhi, on Monday submitted a complaint accusing Karti Chidambaram, Congress Sivaganga candidate, of concealing information about his wealth in his election affidavit.

In his complaint, Srivastava said Karti concealed information about certain wealth acquired by him, his wife and in the name of his minor daughter. Besides, the source of the wealth registered in his daughter’s name was not explained, Srivastava claimed. By virtue of this, he accused Karti of having committed offences under section 125A and sub-section 123 of the Representation of the People Act.

The Indian Revenue Service officer accused Karti of financial misdoings, including money laundering. In his complaint, he has made references to some multinational corporations, which were involved in scams, and a television media house based in New Delhi, which had recently come under the adverse scrutiny of Swadeshi Jagran Manch convenor S Gurumurthy for the manner in which it secured Income Tax concessions. However, the basis for his allegations was not known. When Express contacted Karti, he said, “All information contained in my affidavit are accurate and it is the truth.”
