IT raids on Gali Janardan’s premises

2000-nLess than a week after his daughter’s ostentatious wedding made headlines, the Income Tax sleuths today raided former Karnataka minister Gali Janardhan Reddy’s Obulapuram mining company in Bellary, 300 km from Bengaluru.
A number of documents have been found and are being examined. His residence is also likely to be raided, sources added.
The income tax raid comes five days after the lavish wedding of the mining baron’s daughter raised eyebrows for its pomp and grandeur – held at a time when millions were queueing up outside banks and ATMs for cash.
He is on bail after languishing for 40 months in jail for his alleged involvement in the multi-crore mining scam that rocked the southern state in 2010-11.
Though Reddy was maintaining low profile after his release in January 2015 on conditional bail by the Supreme Court, an expensive marriage invitation sent out with a LCD screen playing a pre-wedding video raised eyebrows and brought him back into limelight.
