    The action is being carried out against Kerala-based jewellery group Joyalukkas and another firm connected with it.

    I-T sleuths are raiding 130 premises of the business houses in the cities of Chennai, Hyderabad, Thrissur and other locations in Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Delhi and West Bengal, I-T sources said.

    The action, they said, is aimed at checking alleged tax evasion following demonetisation in the two firms. Tax sleuths detected huge cash deposits and sale figures of gold, diamond and jewellery in their accounts.

    The Chennai wing of the income tax department is coordinating the nation-wide action, involving over 100 tax sleuths and a number of police teams, sources told PTI.
