Bribery, Is Finding Its Root.
On Sunday, A chartered accountant named Namita Singhania, a resident of Prahladnagar received a sum of Rs 8 lakhs as per her husband Sumit’s instruction and on behalf of an assistant commissioner of income tax, OP Meena. Namita is caught by Anti-Corruption Bureau, Gujarat while the IT official is still not found. The reason as to why the IT official obtained the bribe is to avoid the assessment of complainant’s account. It was found that the complainant has met OP Meena last week to draw a picture about an assessment notice served upon him and at that juncture the IT official has subtly asked for bribe of Rs.20 lakhs . She was aided by her peon Sunil Patni who is also included in the accused name list in the case. The ACB exclaimed that the complainant was shocked by the heavy bribe amount asked by the IT official. The peon had mediated for Rs.50, 000 as his commission between the IT official and the complainant to fix Rs.8 lakhs for settling this transaction. The complainant smartly paid Rs.50,000 to the peon and informed his plight to the ACB officials.
