I-T raid shock for Puneeth Rajkumar, Rockline Venkatesh

Income Tax raids are underway at the residences of Sandalwood actor Puneeth Rajkumar and producer Rockline Venkatesh in Bengaluru on Thursday. The I-T officials raided Puneeth's residence in Sadashivanagar and Venkatesh's house in Mahalakshmi Layout on Thursday morning.

According to sources, it is alleged that Venkatesh had failed to pay the actual tax amount to the government which has lead to the raid. Puneeth is the youngest son of Sandalwood idol, late Dr Rajkumar. He has been a lead actor in 27 films and as a child artiste, he appeared in films featuring his father.

Venkatesh is a film actor, producer and distributor known for his works in Kannada, Tamil, and Hindi cinemas. In 2015, Venkatesh co-produced Bajrangi Bhaijaan which received the National Film Award for Best Popular Film Providing Wholesome Entertainment at the 63rd National Film Awards.
