The country’s top tax collecting authority was astonished after reading the details of the beggar’s possessions, who is believed to be Multan’s ‘richest’ beggar.
The notice was given on Shaukat ‘Bikhari’ after the FBR discovered an Rs1.7 million deposit in his bank account while his children are enrolled in the city’s costly school.
The beggar has also been asked to explain how he was able to get Rs10 million life insurance for his children. Shaukat ‘Bikhari’ has been asked to explain his sources of income and why he neglected to file tax reports.
It has been learned that Shaukat was decamping to avoid paying taxes, and the FBR had established teams to track him down.
