Adnan Sami under service tax scanner
Mumbai: In further trouble for Adnan Sami after the visa row, the Service Tax department has issued the Pakistani singer-composer summons asking him to appear on Monday for questioning in connection with alleged tax evasion.
“We have not been able to consolidate the exact figure of evasion. Sami will be grilled on Monday and then only we would be able to ascertain the amount,” a Service Tax official said.
Tax officials have also directed the 44-year-old to bring all the records pertaining to his work on Monday.
Sami, who has made India his second home for the past several years, landed in a visa controversy when he was issued a notice on Tuesday by the Mumbai Police, which sought explanation from him for overstaying in the country after its expiry October 6.
He was, however granted a three-month extension by the Ministry of Home Affairs on October 17.
