Sonu Sood has proven to be a real-life action hero; his welfare work in lockdown needs no introduction.
However, recently, the actor has been hitting the headlines for some troubling news.
Per previous reports, the Income Tax department had conducted surveys at 6 places linked to Sonu Sood in Mumbai & Lucknow.
After a 3-day-surveillance, the officials were said to have found incriminating evidence and had alleged that Sonu and his associates evaded taxes of over Rs 20 crores.
“The main modus operandi followed by the actor had been to route his unaccounted income in form of bogus unsecured loans from many bogus entities” – the Central Board of Direct Taxes had stated.
Sonu was also accused of allegedly violating the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) while raising donations from abroad! The Income Tax dept had alleged Sonu had collected Rs 19 crore through his charity foundation but spent only 2 crores out of it.
On Monday, Sonu broke his silence over the allegations and took to social media to make a statement –
He wrote – “You don’t always have to tell your side of the story. Time will. I have pledged myself to the service of the people of India with all my strength and heart. Every rupee in my foundation is awaiting its turn to save a precious life and reach the needy. In addition, on many occasions, I have encouraged brands to donate my endorsement fees to humanitarian causes too, which keeps us going.”
He continued further – “I have been busy attending to a few guests, hence was unable to be at your service, for the last four days. Here I am back again in all humility. At your humble service, for life.”
