Giving details, RC Bhalla, said that they conducted the raid after getting a tip-off that the sweet shop was not giving complete details of their sales and neither were they keeping office copies of the bills given to customers.
The raid was conducted after many complaints of tax evasion were received by the excise department.
According to officials, the teams seized important documents related to the business transactions, during the raid.
