Finding myself in a bit of turmoil. Representing for the first time as a coach for some great athletes, meanwhile the IT department is raiding Taapsee’s houses back home, putting unnecessary stress on her family, especially her parents.@KirenRijiju please do something.

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. https://t.co/nIIf5C8TXL

Kiren Rijiju responded on Friday and said that he should pay attention to his professional duties as this issue is not related to his field. Rijiju said in the tweet, ‘Law is paramount and we should abide by it. The related issue is outside your and my jurisdiction. We should concentrate on our professional duties in the best interest of Indian sports. Please tell that the Income Tax Department on Wednesday raided the houses of filmmakers Anurag Kashyap, Pannu and Vikas Bahl in Mumbai.
