The head of Mumbai-based family, which declared a whopping unaccounted wealth of Rs 2 lakh crores, has gone missing, The Indian Express reported on Wednesday quoting sources. Abdul Razzaque Mohammed Sayed, whose family is being investigated by the tax department, is missing since the government rejected the false declaration made by his family. IE sources said that Sayed had presented himself before the I-T department for questioning. However, he or anyone in his family, neither presented himself before the I-T department nor answered any phone calls later. Speaking on the issue, Revenue Secretary Hasmukh Adhia said that I-T department is trying to locate Sayed and “the case will be taken to its logical conclusion.” The Revenue Secretary had said that both, Syeed family and Mahesh Shah (who declared Rs 13,680 crore wealth), are subjected to trial under the relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). “It has become an IPC offence. They (Sayed and Shah) have given the declaration on oath with their signature. They have tried to cheat the government,” said Adhia.
