Sonia Gandhi, president of India's ousted Congress party accused the new Narendra Modi-led government of a "political witch hunt", after tax authorities began probing her party as she and her son face allegations over misusing funds. The Gandhis are the torchbearers of a dynasty that has led India for most of its post-independence era since 1947 but that was dealt its worst ever election defeat by Modi in the general election that ended in May.
