Bhubaneswar, May 4:
A day after Leader of Opposition in Odisha Assembly Narasingha Mishra questioned Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik to explain if his party received Rs 8 crore in a State Bank account from a chit fund accused, the Income Tax Department today officially sent a letter to the bank authorities.
The IT department, in its letter, has asked the bank to provide all necessary information including the deposits and transfers made to and from that account.
An Inspector of IT department today hand delivered the letter to the bank office near Rajpath.
While the reporters attempted to get the officer talking, all he revealed is, “I just handed over the letter. I wouldn’t be able to tell anything pertaining to questioning as I am not the authorised person”.
The bank authorities, in their reaction, confirmed receiving the letter from IT Department.
