Actor –turned-politician Suresh Gopi MP appeared before the probe team of Crime branch on Thursday in a case of tax evasion on luxury car. The case was that the actor used fake documents to register his luxury car in Puducherry.
Earlier, Suresh Gopi had approached the Kerala High Court for an anticipatory bail in the case. But the HC suggested him to appear before the probe team of Crime Branch first. The huge difference in luxury vehicle tax in Kerala and Puducherry attracts VIPs to register their pet cars in Puducherry. Some agents are working on commission basis to facilitate the registration process using fake documents for VIPs.
Two other popular actors Fahad Fazil and Amala Paul are also facing court proceedings in the case.
