New Delhi: Taapsee Pannu on Saturday took to Twitter for the first time after the Income Tax raid on here. She took a dig at Finance Minister Sitharaman by saying, ‘My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honourable finance minister’.

“First of all, I am not commenting on any A or B individual. (But) since the names were taken, (I want to say) the very same names were raided in 2013,” she said in an interaction with journalists at IWPC (Indian Women’s Press Corps), said FM Sitharaman

Because summer holidays are around the corner. 2. The “alleged” receipt worth 5 crores to frame n keep for future pitching coz I’ve been refused that money before. 3. My memory of 2013 raid that happened with me according to our honourable finance minister. P.S- “not so sasti” anymore.”

According to officials:

Evidence of cash receipts by the leading actress (Pannu) amounting to Rs 5 crore has been recovered,” the Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) said.

Taking to Twitter, Taapsee’s boyfriend Boe on Thursday wrote, “Finding myself in a bit of turmoil. Representing India for the first time as a coach for some great athletes, meanwhile, I-T department is raiding Taapsee’s houses back home, putting unnecessary stress on her family, especially her parents. @KirenRijiju please do something.”
