A CBI court here on Friday sentenced a superintendent of Central Excise and Service Tax for two years rigorous imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 for taking bribe to issue a Service Tax registration certificate.

A Sukumar was a superintendent in the office of deputy commissioner of Central Excise and Service Tax, Coimbatore - I division. D Senthil Kumar, who owned a firm in the name of Vivekanantha Job Solutions in the city, had approached a bank for loan to run his business.

He was booked under section 7 and sec 13(2) r/w 13(1)(d) of Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

After investigation, the CBI filed its final report before the additional district judge and special judge for CBI cases. The CBI court judge H Joseph David sentenced him for two years rigorous imprisonment and imposed a fine of Rs 10,000.

Sukumar paid the fine amount immediately before the court and he was granted bail immediately.
