‘Stick to professional duties,’ says Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju to Taapsee Pannu’s beau badminton coach Mathias Boe as he asks for intervention in IT raids on the actress


Sports Minister Kiren Rijiju on Friday gave a sharp reaction to foreign badminton coach Mathias Boe’s tweet on the Income Tax raid at properties of his girlfriend Taapsee Pannu. The sports minister rebuked Mathias and told him to stick to his professional duties instead of commenting on matters that are not in his domain of work.

Mathias had tweeted tagging Rijiju on Thursday after the Income Tax department raided properties of Taapsee Pannu, Anurag Kashyap Vikas Bahl, Madhu Mantena and Phantom Films. The former Danish shuttler, who is currently with the Indian badminton players in Switzerland for the Swiss Open expressed his concern for Taapsee and her family.

Rijiju responded to him and wrote, “Law of the land is supreme and we must abide by that. The subject matter is beyond yours and my domain. We must stick to our professional duties in the best interest of Indian Sports.”

Last night, Income Tax Department issued a statement stating that it had found discrepancies during its raid on the Bollywood celebs amounting to Rs 300-350 crore.
