The case was registered on the basis of the findings of an August 5 raid by state CID and Income Tax authorities at a north Bengaluru flat linked to Mohan’s family. The raid had led to seizure of Rs 4.37 crore in cash, over 2.5 kg of gold and diamonds and details of dozens of properties.

The wealth seized is disproportionate to Mohan’s known sources of income and annual declaration of returns, the FIR states.

The raid at the apartment registered in the name of a private firm PSK Finance Solutions Ltd, run by the Mohan’s family, led to recovery of documents related to purchase and subsequent sale of over a dozen properties in Bengaluru, Noida and other parts of the country.
