It further says that evidence detected so far reveals undisclosed cash dealings of huge amounts in immovable property transactions, construction etc.
 
According to the release, the black money generated in India through various means has been stashed abroad in the form of lavish properties in the names of foreign trusts/companies located in tax havens.
 
The release further states that such foreign holdings of the main persons have remained hidden for decades beneath complex multi – layered structures, located in different countries including BVI, Panama, UK, UAE & Jersey. These structures have involved various front men and corporations across Continents. One of the persons covered during the search operation was trying to obtain citizenship of a Caribbean Island.
 
The investigation, which has successfully lifted the mask, has detected undisclosed foreign assets of the said persons of more than Rs. 200 crore, apart from domestic tax evasion of more than Rs. 30 crore which, may, inter alia lead to severe criminal consequences under the Black Money Act, 2015, apart from action under the Income Tax Act, 1961. These findings may also have multi agency ramifications, added the Press Release.
