    it is rare that some income tax official is arrested for bribery. That too in Delhi !!! People don’t report to CBI etc as they fear revenge from income tax authorities. No wonder they are called “wardi wale gunday”.

  2. VUM Rao says:

    Let there be an awareness in our country. Searches should be conducted extensively and intensively through out our country and unearth huge sums of black money and punish those involved so that country is cleaned once for all and happiness is restored. Do not spare any body as no one is above law and justice.
