Press Release- New Delhi, 09.01.2018

The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested an Income Tax Officer, Sirhind (Punjab) and two IT Inspectors (one serving, one retired) in a bribery case of Rs. 70,000/-.

CBI had registered a case on a complaint received from a businessman of Mandi Gobindgarh, District Fatehgarh Sahib (Punjab). The complainant had alleged that the Income Tax assessment proceedings of his bank accounts transactions were being processed by the Income Tax Officer, Sirhind (Punjab). The complainant approached a retired Income Tax Inspector who was allegedly close to said ITO for necessary help. The retired Inspector demanded a bribe of Rs. one lakh on behalf of said ITO for getting favourable assessment order. After negotiation, the bribe was reduced to Rs. 70,000/-.

CBI laid a trap, in which the retired Income Tax Inspector accepted Rs.70,000/- from the complainant on behalf of said ITO. Thereafter, he gave share of Rs.10,000/- to another Inspector and then went to office chamber of ITO along with the complainant. The ITO acknowledged the said bribe and assured the complainant that his work will be done. All the three accused were caught while demanding and accepting the said bribe.

Searches were conducted at the residences of all the three accused persons at Sirhind, Patiala & Chandigarh which led to recovery of certain property documents and details pertaining to bank accounts.

The arrested accused are being produced today in the Designated Court at Mohali (Punjab).
