Vastavam web: The Income Tax officials began widespread raids on the Kalki Bhagwan Ashrams in Chittoor district in Andhra Pradesh and also in Tamil Nadu and Karnataka. The raids are continuing at the ashram located at Battalavallam village in Varadaiahpalem mandal in Chittoor district. The raids were started yesterday following complaints that the Kalki Ashram organisers are diverting massive funds donated by the devotees. They are using the finds to buy real estate property in prime locations in cities and towns.
The officials questioned the Kalki organisers on the overall donations collected and their expenditure. The raids were held at over 30 institutions that are being run by the Kalki Ashrams in the three states.
