The Income Tax officials alleged that searches were carried out against the HRPL following allegations of tax evasion.
HRPL is a step down subsidiary of Westlife Development Ltd, a company listed on stock exchanges, including BSE.
Efforts to seek comments from the company officials did not fructify as they did not reply to emails sent to them.
According to the information available on HRPL's portal, it was operating 252 restaurants as of December 31, 2016, across 34 cities and 10 states in west and south India.
