The Income Tax department on Wednesday surveyed actor Sonu Sood's residence and office. As per Republic sources, this is not a search or seizure, but a survey, or an investigation.

Sonu Sood has not yet given a statement on the matter.
After the news of Sonu Sood's office and residence being surveyed by the Income Tax department, there has been a new development in the case. According to Republic Media Network sources, the actor’s partner, Anil Singh was also searched by the IT department. Simultaneous surveys are being conducted in Mumbai and Lucknow.
Most recently, Sonu Sood came forward to extend a helping hand to children suffering from viral fever in Uttar Pradesh.
