A senior officer privy to the operation said five locations were raided in Ludhiana and one each in Patiala and Moga. “A textile manufacturing, chemical manufacturing unit and a healthcare centre were among those raided. The raids have been conducted as the department was tipped of unaccounted cash, Goods and Service Tax (GST) evasion, suppression of profit and cash deposits,” said the officer who wished to stay anonymous.
