The raids were done under the suitable police protection.

However, the officials did not divulge the details of the raid.

However, it is learnt that important documents were recovered from these houses.

At the press meet, Ravi clarified that the raid was not conducted on his house but he would welcome any kind of enquiry as he was confident of coming out clean.

He added that there was no need to panic by these raids on his supporters’ houses.

Ravi described the raid on his relative Sudarshan’s house as routine.

“This is done to divert attention from the MLC elections. Raid might have taken place because of rumours . I am ready to face any enquiry. I have submitted accounts and tax regularly. I have told my people to cooperate with the income tax officials,” said Ravi.
