The Income Tax Department has carried out searches against two Chennai-based groups, one of which is a leading bullion trader in Tamil Nadu and the other, one of the biggest jewellery retailers in South India.

The search operation was carried out on Thursday at 27 premises located in Chennai, Mumbai, Coimbatore, Madurai, Tiruchi, Thrissur, Nellore, Jaipur and Indore, an official release said.
