No political motive should be seen in IT raids on film stars, producers: Karnataka CM
Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy on Saturday said no political motive should be seen in the ongoing Income Tax raids on top Kannada film stars and producers and asserted that they were only doing their duty, based on the inputs they receive.

Kumaraswamy said the raids were going on everywhere and it happens only when the I-T officials come to know about tax evasion.

"Instead of saying they (raids) are politically motivated, we should say that the I-T officials are doing their duty. What choice do they have if the information is correct?" he told reporters in Hubballi.
