According to the Income Tax Department, the three firms are engaged in the business of land development as well as construction activities in Kurnool and other rural areas of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. More than two dozen premises were covered during the search operations in several places, including Kurnool, Anantapur, Kadapa, Nandyal and Bellary.

During the searches, the department officials seized several incriminating documents, including handwritten agreements, digital data from a specialised software application and other electronic gadgets.
