Sonu Sood responds after tax raids
While Sonu Sood has received praise for his philanthropic work, on the other hand, the actor has gone under the radar of the income tax department. Recently, the IT department carried out an investigation into the offices, property and residence of Sonu Sood. They alleged the actor and his associates evaded tax to the tune of 20 crore and violated the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) while raising funds abroad.
Responding to the allegations, relying on his information on social media, the actor released a statement. His statement reads: âYou don’t always have to tell your side of the story, time will. I have committed myself to the service of the Indian people with all my strength and with all my heart. In his statement, he also mentioned that every rupee from his foundation goes to the needy or to save a life.
âEvery rupee in my foundation is waiting its turn to save precious life and reach the needy. In addition, on numerous occasions, I have encouraged brands to donate my sponsorship fees to humanitarian causes as well, which keeps us going. He concluded his statement by writing, “I have been busy taking care of a few guests, so I have not been able to be of service to you for the past few days. Here I am again, in all humility, at your humble service for life. My journey continues.
