Service tax inspector gets 7 yrs for graft
September, 26th 2016

A special CBI court on Saturday sentenced an inspector of the service tax department to 7 years of rigorous imprisonment in connection with a bribery case. The court of Anuj Kumar Sangal also imposed a fine of Rs 10,000 on Vikas Jatav, an inspector in the service tax department, posted in Roorkee. Complainant Govind Gopal Kaushik, a resident of Roorkee, had filed a complaint with CBI on May 5, 2015, against Jatav.

Kaushik had applied with the service tax department for a registration licence for his firm Matheswari Labour Contractors. Kaushik alleged that Jatav demanded a bribe of Rs 3,500 to approve the registration licence. Kaushik then recorded the conversation between him and Jatav and handed the audio clip to the CBI. CBI filed an FIR on May 6, 2015, against Jatav under section 7 of the Prevention of Corruption Act, 1988.

Prosecution lawyer Satish Kumar said, "After finding the complaint to be true and registering the FIR, the CBI team laid a trap and caught the service tax inspector red handed while accepting the bribe of Rs 3,500 in his office."

The CBI filed the chargesheet in the case on July 3, 2015. The court framed charges against Jatav on September 14, 2015. The court also ordered to open a special file under section 344 of CrPC against K K Anand (superintendent in the service tax department at Haridwar), Guddu (peon in the department), Rakesh Dhiman and Anubhav Dhiman for giving false evidence before the court.
