 Income Tax officials will be poring through the contents of a pen drive which they have taken during Wednesday’s raid at the office of Tamil Nadu chief secretary Rammohan Rao.

The pen drive and some papers were taken away by the sleuths on Wednesday, said a source at the secretariat.
 
The IT raids continued well into the night. The raids were carried out at Rao’s residence as well as the office chamber.
 
Rao, 58, was made the chief secretary in June this year. The 1985 batch officer also holds the charge of vigilance commissioner and commissioner for administrative reforms. He was earlier additional chief secretary/secretary-I to the chief minister before he was named as the chief secretary.
 
 The income tax department is yet to issue any statement on the raid. 
 
Tax department sleuths also raided the Thiruvanmiyur residence of Rao’s son Vivek. The IT sleuths also visited Vivek’s parent-in-laws house in Chittoor.  
 
 It is understood that the name of Rao came up after the IT department officials questioned Shekar Reddy, a businessman and former member of Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam Board. Reddy was raided early this month.
