IT raids Surya & co

The Income Tax department has cracked down on actor Suriya and his close associates. The raids started early in the morning from 7 am and went on till afternoon 2pm. IT officials conducted the raid at various offices and residences of the star and those closely associated with him. Among those from Kollywood who were raided are Suriya, KS Ravikumar (Aadhavan director), AR Murgadoss (Ghajini director), Gjnavel Raja the actor's cousin and producer of his next film Singam.

The offices of Agaram Foundation, a charity trust and foundation floated by the actor and a business man associated with the foundation have come under the IT scanner. The raids have come four days after Vijay TV and Suriya’s Agaram Foundation came together for a movement called ‘Vidhai’ to generate the pool corpus to help students to achieve their academic goals. Suriya and a few businessmen raised Rs 1 crore for the “noble cause”. On Pongal day Vijay TV showed a special programme anchored by Suriya titled Oru Koodi, Oru Thodakkam , where Agaram Foundation’s efforts were highlighted.

Suriya in an interview before the programme had said: “Agaram acts as bridge to connect the deserving students and those who are willing to provide money for the students. Agaram Foundation would choose the deserving students at the end of this academic year and the students would be funded completely for their higher education - be it Engineering or Medicine or any course of the student’s choice from the fund that is collected”.
