I-T searches at Lilavati Hospital continue for second day
Mumbai: The I-T searches at the Lilavati
Hospital, whose trustees are under the Income Tax Department`s
scanner for alleged financial irregularities, continued for
the second day on Tuesday.
The department sleuths questioned the trustees of the
multi-specialty hospital located in suburban Bandra and
recorded their statements, I-T sources said.
The I-T Department yesterday conducted search and
survey operations at the hospital and 28 other premises here
in connection with alleged financial irregularities committed
by its trustees and owners.
The operations come in the wake of a petition filed by
Delhi resident Harsh Raghuvanshi seeking investigation into
alleged siphoning of funds by hospital trustees Prabodh Mehta,
Rashmi Mehta, Chetan Mehta and Bhavin Mehta.
It has been alleged that the Mehtas have siphoned out
money from the hospital trust and deposited it in LGT bank,
Germany and other tax havens abroad, including those in
Mauritius, using hawala channels.
The department has said they will also question and
conduct surveys on the sellers from whom medical equipment and
medicines were bought.
The Supreme Court had last week issued notices to the
Centre and RBI on a petition seeking probe into the alleged
money laundering by Lilavati Hospital trustees.
