Bengaluru: Former Karnataka deputy chief minister G Parameshwara on Tuesday appeared before Income Tax sleuths for questioning in Bengaluru.

The IT officials will be questioning Parameshwara in connection with a multi-crore tax evasion case linked to the NEET exams.

The Income Tax Department had on October 10 seized about Rs 5 crore cash during raids against G Parameshwara and others.

In coordinated raids, more than 300 Income Tax sleuths swooped down on premises linked to two prominent Congress leaders in Karnataka – the former deputy chief minister and former MP R L Jalappa’s son J Rajendra.

The raids are in connection with a multi-crore tax evasion case linked to the NEET exams, officials said.

Besides raiding the office, residence and institutions belonging to Parameshwara, the I-T officials also searched the residence of his brother G Shivaprasad and personal assistant Ramesh, sources in the department said.

While Parameshwara’s family runs the Siddhartha Group of Institutions, which was established by his father H M Gangadharaiah 58 years ago, Rajendra runs the R L Jalappa Institute of Technology at Doddaballapura and Kolar.
