Mumbai: Businessman Ajay Piramal on Friday spoke out against the frequent raids, searches and lookout notices by various government agencies on corporates and blamed these actions for creating a "mistrust" among the business community.

The head of the diversified Piramal Group refused to comment on the media reports of Japanese investor SoftBank backing out of a proposed deal with his NBFC arm.

The comments on the business climate come at a time when many a too business leader, including L&T's AM Naik and others have been flagging these concerns.
