MILWAUKEE (AP) – A Milwaukee area neurosurgeon is facing additional federal charges that accuse him of conspiring to defraud the Internal Revenue Service.
A new indictment was returned Wednesday in Milwaukee alleging Dr. Arvind Ahuja, of Greendale, conspired with bankers to conceal foreign bank accounts from the IRS. The indictment alleges Anhuja told bankers he didn’t want any mail sent to his homes in Wisconsin and India.
The doctor is also facing eight counts of tax fraud, which were handed down earlier. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, Ahuja filed false tax returns and failed to report nearly $9 million held in overseas accounts.
Ahuja’s attorney, Dan Webb, said his client is innocent and that the government had made a “colossal mistake.”
A trial date has not been set.
