Ngo News- NGO behind Anna Hazare’s Lokpal agitation under I-T scanner

India Against Corruption (IAC), the organisation that was behindĀ Anna Hazare’s Jan Lokpal movement last year, is set to be audited by the income tax (I-T) authorities and the Enforcement Directorate (ED), according to a Delhi Police status report filed in a court on Tuesday.

The report, submitted to additional chief metropolitan magistrate Amit Bansal, was meant to apprise the court of developments in a police probe against Team Anna memberĀ Kiran Bedi.

An FIR was registered against Bedi for allegedly siphoning off donor funds, causing a loss to the government. In its status report, the police said it had sought details from the HRD ministry regarding complaints against Bedi’s Navjyoti India Foundation.

I-T authorities have also been asked to look into the accounts of the Public Cause Research Foundation to check if the donations received by the IAC during the agitation were diverted for illegal tax benefits.

“Letters have been written to the I-I authorities to audit the accounts of the IAC and the Public Cause Research Foundation.

Letter has also been written to the ED to examine the funding of the NGOs from abroad,” the police report said.
