Salman & Ash grilled by the IT department:

Trouble as always comes in droves. Barely had Salman recovered from the infamous black buck episode, was he raided by the Income Tax authorities in September. Close on the heels of a police interrogation for criminal links for his role in Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, Salman and Aishwarya were summoned by the IT dept. Salman along with girlfriend Aishwarya Rai apparently visited the Income Tax headquarters to meet Director General, Investigations. Investigations revealed some documents belonging to his former girlfriend and Pakistani actress Somy Ali, which have caught the eye of the IT, imply financial irregularities. The department is now scrutinizing Somy Ali’s foreign bank accounts on the basis of documents found at Salman’s residence at Bandra. Salman’s house was one of those raided during a swoop by I-T sleuths on several film personalities. In a double whammy for Salman, Aishwarya’s opening the door to the Salman residence surprised the IT sleuths. This resulted in raids on Aishwarya, who was originally not on the list of people to be raided. Aishwarya generally stays with Salman. The department also recovered some blank stamp papers signed by Somy Ali’s father at Salman Khan’s house. Ali was staying at the Khan residence for several months when she was trying to get a break in the Mumbai film industry. IT officials also recovered some documents pertaining to film stage shows organized abroad. The department suspects that some stars were using certain IT concessions to evade taxes. It believes that the stars, to evade taxes, were misusing a provision, which gives tax relief on professional fees earned abroad. Similarly, another modus operandi was a provision being misused to siphon off money abroad through the hawala conduit. Coming close on the heels of CCCC issue, Salman Khan has moved to his Panvel farmhouse and has switched off his mobile.
