PUNE: Income Tax officials raided residence of senior Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator Baburao Chandore in Pune on Tuesday. Chandore is a close confident of NCP leader and former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar.

He was in news recently after extravaganza at his son’s marriage. The I-T raid is considered to be connected to the same, though IT officials declined to comment.

According to sources, I-T officials in simple clothes arrived in private vehicles at Chandore’s residence in the Baner area of Pune city early in the morning at around 6.30 am. There were about 10-12 officers in the squad and the raid lasted for a very long time. Neither the officials nor Chandore was available for any details on the raid.

A three-time corporator, Chandore runs several businesses. He had also contested assembly election in 2014 but had lost it. The political circles are rife with speculation, whether the raid had any connection with the multi-thousand crore irrigation scam, wherein senior NCP leaders are suspected to have been involved.
