Apart from this unaccounted cash of ₹9 crore has been seized so far. The searches were carried out on Thursday at 35 premises in Chennai.

According to details furnished by the I-T department, the evidence found in the premises of the financiers and their associates revealed that these groups have lent to various big corporate houses and businesses in Tamil Nadu, a substantial portion of which is in cash.

During the search, it was detected that they are charging a high rate of interest, a part of which is not offered to tax.
