IT department had approached the court to question Khaitan in an income tax case in judicial custody (Tihar Jail) to record his statement.
The Income Tax department has mentioned that there is evidence. "Many of these evidence show tax evasions and that he has to be questioned regarding this and stashed black money," the Income Tax Department contended.
The development came to light just days after the Delhi High Court sought a reply from Union of India on the plea filed by Khaitan challenging the legality and validity of various acts including the Black Money (Undisclosed Foreign Income and Assets) and Imposition of Tax Act, 2015.
In February, the Patiala House Court issued a production warrant against Khaitan in the AgustaWestland case. Enforcement Directorate had told the court that some reports are awaited from MHA regarding other accused like Guido Haschke and Carlos Gerosa. The Patiala House Court had adjourned the hearing for 9th May.
