Income tax raids Pune businessman Avinash Bhosale and his son-in-law Vishwajeet Kadam’s office


A renowned businessman from Pune Avinash Bhosale came under Income Tax surveillance and his office was raided by Income Tax department today, along with Bhosale, his son-in-law Vishwajeet Kadam office was also raided. Vishwajeet Kadam is the son of senior Congress leader Patangaro Kadam. According to Sakal Times sources, the homes and offices of both Bhosale and Kadam were part of these raids. The help of local police has been taken for security reasons. All the work was stopped during the raid and phones have been taken into custody.

There were many raids by IT but exact location is not confirmed and reason of the raids is said to be that both of them own multiple properties in the city. “There is no action taken against their own leaders against whom there are severe allegations, but various agencies are hounding the Congress and opposition parties ever since the BJP came to power,” state Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant said.

Around 10 years ago, the low-profile Bhosale, who is a realty developer and into hotel business, was arrested by the Department of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) from Mumbai Airport and later released on bail. Similarly, Kadam, married to Bhosale’s daughter Swapnali Bhosale, was the wealthiest candidate in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections which he lost to the BJP nominee.

His father Patangrao Kadam is a front-ranking Congress politician and a former cabinet minister in Maharashtra, besides running the famed Bharatiya Vidyapeeth, a Deemed University with several educational insitutions under its fold. Bhosale lives in a huge well-appointed mansion, often called a “palace” by the locals with a private heliport for his helicopter, and owns a fleet of BMWs and Rolls Royces parked in the garage.
