His case came out when FBR sent him a tax notice of 13 million. It was due to the fact that authorities could see huge sums coming into his account. His account would get more than 1 million every month, without any significant activity. And then, he would’nt file his income tax returns or submit the due taxes to the authorities. So, FBR wants some of it in the national kitty.
