The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested an Income Tax Officer; an Inspector, both posted at Nagaur (Rajasthan) and a Chartered Accountant in a bribery case of Rs. 4 lakh.

A case was registered on a complaint, against two Income Tax Officers, an Income Tax Inspector, all of them of the Income Tax Department, Nagaur (Rajasthan); a Chartered Accountant and others U/s 120 B of IPC & Section 7 of PC Act, 1988 (as amended in 2018).
