Behind every successful man, there is a woman. Investigators tracking funds of Hasan Ali Khan, billed as the country's largest tax evader, are racing against time to prove the popular adage true in this case.


Wives of Khan and his associate Kashinath Tapuriah have now emerged as a "crucial" link to a huge number of investments and charges of money laundering and tax evasion, which is being probed by agencies like the Enforcement Directorate and the Income Tax Department.
