Ranchi, Nov. 1 (ANI): Income Tax department on Sunday reportedly claimed that it has found evidence of former Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda's link to "unaccounted" money transactions amounting to Rs 400 crore.
Earlier in the day, Income tax officials continued the raids being conducted at several addresses linked with Koda.
According to sources, documents relating to illegal transaction of Rs.2,000 crore were found during the raids.
Properties of Vinod Sinha and Sanjay Chaudhary- close associates of Koda- were also raided.
