Ludhiana: A court in Ludhiana on Friday adjourned the hearing on a complaint filed by the Income Tax department against Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh in a case of alleged untaxed foreign assets till April 24.
Amarinder was the Punjab Congress chief at that time.
After hearing the arguments of I-T department counsel Rakesh Gupta, Chief Judicial Magistrate Jupinder Singh will now take a call as to whether the chief minister needs to be summoned in connection with the case or not.
It had alleged that during its probe, Amarinder was "found to be the beneficiary" of a trust and other properties owned and created by his son Raninder in a foreign country and he had also misguided the department.
It had already filed a similar complaint against Raninder, who was charged under section 276C, I-T Act (wilful attempt to evade tax).
The department had also allegedly detected movement of funds to Switzerland and creation of a trust and a few subsidiaries in the tax haven of British Virgin Islands by Raninder.
Both Amarinder and Raninder have denied the allegations.
