Mallya may be the king of defaulters but he’s got competition. A whole bevy of A-list celebrities have been caught out-dodging the system.
In fact NewsX has accessed a questionnaire posed by legislators to the Maharashtra CM seeking responses as to why these richie-riches were allowed to default on Rs 5 crores between them for security services they took from the government.
Incidentally not just these 62 A-listers including Boney Kapoor, Boman Irani, Ness Wadia, but NewsX has learnt that India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has passed his Hummer off as a Scorpio to cheat on paying taxes. Mr Dhoni’s omission means that he saved on paying Rs 4 lakhs to the ex-chequer.
Strangely the Maharashtra chief minister has refused to entertain any question on what steps his administration has taken to recover the money from these individuals who are filthy rich but morally bankrupt.
