The raids were conducted with a team of about 120 Income Tax officials with the aid of central paramilitary force. He also tweeted that the BJP is on an unprecedented witch-hunt just to win one Rajya Sabha seat. "When there is a raid, the IT officials have to record the person's statement, so they went to the resort", Jaitley said.

Mr Tewari wondered why the Income tax department had not raided Shivkumar earlier, as he is a minister since last three years.

Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday said that IT raid on state Power Minister D.K. Shivakumar is a politically motivated move.

India's main opposition Congress party Wednesday accused ruling Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) of creating fear among lawmakers from India's western state of Gujarat by conducting raids on them using income tax officials.

Approximately 44 Congress MLAs arrived in Bengaluru on Saturday with a view to keep them from resigning or joining the BJP.

The locations that were searched belong to Karnataka Energy Minister DK Shivakumar, who was overseeing the accommodation of the MLAs from Gujarat. "If they were searching him they should have gone to his house", he said.




After using the state machinery and other agencies, these I-T raids show their utter desperation and frustration -Ahmed Patel.

"The Chief Minister has not scheduled any official engagements for the day as he is preoccupied with meetings at his residence with Ministers and officials and party leaders", said an official.

"Our teams have resumed the search operations at many places in the city, Kanakapura, Mysuru and New Delhi".

On 30 July, BJP had launched a protest against the Congress MLAs in Bengaluru and said that while flood was wrecking havoc in Gujarat, the legislators were sitting in a resort far away.

While no cash was found in Bengaluru, I-T sleuths said they seized hundreds of documents related to the minister's business and other financial transactions that raised questions about his business enterprises.

As the raids on the resort triggered angry reactions from the Congress, the IT department said the resort is not being raided.
