The Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) has frozen the bank account of renowned singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan over tax-evasion.

According to the FBR officials, the singer did not pay taxes of worth 3 million for the year 2015.

The FBR carried out raid on a private bank’s branch and recovered Rs105,000 from his account before freezing it.

This is not the first time the singer has been caught in taxpaying scandals. In 2011, Rahat was detained at the Indira Gandhi international airport for carrying undeclared foreign currency worth $1, 24,000. He was then released after being charged by Indian authorities with currency violations.

Earlier, actresses Noor Bukhari and Saba Qamar were found to be evading taxes, due to which their houses were sealed. The FBR official stated that Noor was charged of tax evasion of worth Rs 1.4 million and Saba for worth 3.4 million.
