After Visa row, Adnan Sami is slapped with tax evasion charges!

If Adnan Sami had thought that his troublesome days are behind him after the very confusing saga over his Visa issues, is back in the limelight for a wrong reason again! His woes seem to be far from over. While it first started with his marriage issues with wife, this week he was in the news for visa approval issues. While on one hand, Adnan Sami got a relief by getting a 3 months extension on his visa, tax sleuth came knocking at his doors and booked for charge of evasion of tax. It doesn’t end here, the IT Dept have ordered him to present when asked to sommon on Monday.

The charges on Adnan SAmi are that he performed around 15 shows in India and didn’t pay service tax for a long time, dating back to July 2012. Throwing some light on the case, Sameer Wankhede (Deputy Commissioner- Service Tax) said that they have registered a case against Adnan Sami, and have also issued summons to him.

Buzz in town is that the reason why Adnan Sami couldn’t pay his service tax is due to RBI. Yes, you read that right! Apparently, the Reserve Bank of India had frozen all his bank accounts and he wasn’t in a position to produce money to pay the taxes, a resaon which the officials didn’t buy, and this led to him being booked for tax evasion charges
