In a significant development, the Department of Revenue Investigation apprehended businessman Naresh Agrawal on Thursday night from Chetrapati on charges related to tax evasion. The arrest follows a thorough investigation into Agrawal’s alleged involvement in illicit financial activities.

During a late-night raid, law enforcement officials discovered a staggering Rs 20 million in cash at Agrawal’s location. The substantial amount raises concerns about the scale of the businessman’s suspected tax evasion activities.
