Income Tax sleuths on Thursday carried out raids at multiple places in Karnataka including in Bengaluru in connection with tax evasion and amassing wealth more than the known sources of income, sources in the I-T department said.

According to the sources, contractors in the Irrigation department were the prime target of the coordinated raids. The I-T sleuths also conducted searches at the residences and offices of a few chartered accountants.

Sources said one of the persons raided was close to a former chief minister.

The sources said the raids took place in over 50 places across Bengaluru, Bagalkote, Belagavi, Vijayapura and Davangere.

However, senior I-T officials remained tight-lipped and did not react to media queries.
