The Income Tax Department launched search operations Wednesday at about 400 locations belonging to various groups, including liquor barons, across the country, sources said.

The search operation is underway in five states including Haryans’s Gurugram, Mumbai, Delhi.



In Mumbai, an IT team reached the Embassy Group office located in the Bandra Kurla complex. No one was allowed to leave or enter the office.

In Gurugram, the search operation was underway in the office of a businessman who deals with alcohol.

The government agency doubts that they are involved in tax evasion.
