“The court has issued a bailable warrant against Modi,” the official said. He said the department was investigating the matter against Modi since 2017 but declined to disclose the details of the property. The Income Tax department had recorded the statements of Modi, who is said to be in the US, and some of his employees. The official said the probe revealed that Modi had given a false statement to the department. “When we went to his residence in Worli recently, with summons, we found it locked,” the officer said. A case was later filed in the court. The court has adjourned the case till next month.
