After the storming episodes of Income tax raids in his ashram and his closest locations, the self styled godman Kalki Bhagwan has opened up for the first time since being brought under the avatar of IT raids on the grounds of suspecting tax evasions.
Kalki Bhagwan has been one of the most followed spiritual gurus in India who had proclaimed himself as an avatar of Lord Vishnu where he has been on the national spotlight through the recent unpleasant scenes of IT raids in his ashram and its branches. The reports say that the authorities of IT department had stormed in his ashram premises in the states of Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka and Telangana in which his main ashram in Chittoor hadn't missed out from the lens of raids and the officials from Income tax had cited that following the series of raids in his ashram, they had seized and recovered multiple documents that had justified the suspicious mechanisms of tax evasions and allegations of overseas donations and adding to that, the spiritual organization has also been accused with illegal land acquisitions.
The reports further stated that the raids which started on October 16th and lasted for about five days in which about 400 IT authorities were involved and sieved about 40 places that had exposed numerous documents from the ashram, its branches and from the business entities of God-man's son that revealed the allegations of money laundering and dodging of taxes where through the evaded money, they had allegedly acquired illegal lands and invested in foreign countries. The authorities had indicated that they had largely done a cash transactions without getting into online or banking services that had aided them to get rid off the virtual lenses of the income tax department.
After concluding their search, the Income tax department had collated the documents and accounts that were recovered during the search after which it was reported that the ashram had allegedly evaded about Rs 800 crores following which they had subpoenaed the godman's family to appear before the income tax to disclose the base and the backgrounds of the mountain of assets. While Kalki's son and his daughter in law had appeared before the Income tax department in Chennai, Godman Kalki Bhagwan had reportedly failed to respond the summon.
Despite of being summoned by the Income tax, Kalki Bhagwan and his wife had addressed their devotees through video, for the first time since the ashram was hosted with series of the IT raids in which they had seen blessing their devotees and stated that the ashram has been functioning normally with no disputes and rebutted the claims on accusing them that they had left the country. They further added that they are still residing in the ashram and performing yoga and prayers and asserted that they would neither get abandoned nor leave the devotees anywhere and claimed that they had become more powerful now after IT raids through which they seemingly assured the devotees to help in their problems.
