Patna: Sleuths of the Income Tax department on Thursday conducted raids at several locations of Bihar Industries Minister and senior RJD leader Sameer Kumar Seth in connection with allegedly amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Official sources said here that sleuths of the Income Tax department conducted raids at several locations of Mahasheth, allegedly for amassing assets disproportionate to his known sources of income.

Besides at his residence in Patna, raids were going at other locations including offices of a construction company and his other business activities, sources added.

Officials, however, refused to give any details of the recoveries during the raids, saying it would be compiled and assessed only after the end of the operation.

Mahasheth, a senior RJD leader, was elected to Bihar Legislative Assembly from the Madhubani seat in the 2020 Assembly elections.

He was made Industries Minister from RJD quota when Chief Minister Nitish Kumar walked away from NDA on August 9 this year and formed the Grand Alliance government having seven parties as its constituents including Congress and RJD.

Meanwhile, RJD spokesman Shakti Singh Yadav told media persons that raids were being conducted by Income Tax due to political vendetta. BJP government at the Centre was misusing Central agencies to settle the political score, he added.

No Central agency had conducted raids at the location of any BJP leader so far during the last eight years, he pointed out.
