Income Tax Officer Arrested in Nanda Case

Another day in the life of an income tax officer. From a PTI report.

Arms dealer Suresh Nanda, charged with receiving kickbacks in defence deals, his son and two others have been arrested by CBI for allegedly conspiring to fudge their account books seized by the IT department during a raid last year.

They were arrested in Mumbai on Saturday night by the investigative agency after registering a case against Nandas, Income Tax Deputy Director Ashutosh Verma and chartered accountant Bipin Shah, official sources said on Sunday.

Verma, an Indian Revenue Service officer of 1999 batch, is alleged to have helped the Nandas in fudging account books seized during a raid in February last year, they said.

Nanda's chartered accountant and the income tax officer were also accused of trying to manipulate IT orders in the favour of Nandas. The IT department had searched 20 premises of arms dealer Nanda, in Delhi and in Mumbai and claimed to have recovered cash worth several lakh of rupees and a large number of documents.

Damn surprised, aren't we?
