The Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) in Pakistan has initiated an investigation into Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan for alleged money laundering and tax evasion. This comes after reports surfaced indicating that the singer earned nearly eight billion Rupees for 12 years from concerts both locally and internationally.

The Pakistani tax authorities’ decision to probe Khan coincides with the musician facing scrutiny over a video showing him physically assaulting one of his band members in a dispute over a missing bottle of liquor. The video of the assault has garnered widespread shock and attention globally.

As per reports, FIA has requested FBR to provide the complete record of Rahat’s assets and income tax. This isn’t the first time the singer has faced issues with the FIA and the FBR, but the current allegations are notably serious. Sources from the FBR have stated that the singer’s tax payment record bears no resemblance whatsoever to his actual income.

The FIA’s actions were prompted by revelations from Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s former global promoter, Salman Ahmed, who disclosed that the singer had earned approximately eight billion Rupees over 12 years under his management. This included over $22 million from international tours and over PKR 1.3 billion from concerts in Pakistan. Ahmed also stated his willingness to provide comprehensive evidence, including audit trails and financial data, to both the FIA and the FBR.
