CBI has booked a Delhi based Chartered Accountant (CA) in a alleged Bribery case. A lady Income Tax Inspector has also been booked along with the said CA.
A written complaint was made to the CBI alleging that that one Income Tax officer (ITO) at Delhi had issued several notices to the complainant regarding cash deposited in his savings bank account stating that the complainant had not paid the income Tax on the said income.
It was further alleged that the CA of the complainant told him that the said Income Tax Officer and one lady Inspector were demanding bribe of Rs. 2,00,000/- (Two lakhs) for the cash deposit and another Rs. 1,00,000/- (One Lakh) for another year during which the complainant had taken a contract of Wine Shop and at that time he had not deposited the income Tax.
The CBI laid the trap and recorded the conversation between the said Inspector and the complainant in the presence of an independent witness. The conversation confirmed the demand of bribe.
The several mobile phone conversation between the CA and the complainant was also recorded which revealed his active involvement.
Further verification also strengthened the demand of bribe on the part of the Inspector for settlement of the income tax case of the complainant. The CBI found that thought the role of the ITO was suspicious, the demand of bribe on his part was not established.
Accordingly, CBI registered the case against the said Inspector and the CA for criminal conspiracy under section 120B of IPC read with section 7 of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988----------- Similar Posts: -----------
