Gurugram GST officers arrest 2 for defrauding exchequer of over Rs 690Cr

TOG NEWS SERVICE, NEW DELHI, MAR 10, 2021: OFFICERS of the Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI), Gurugram Zonal Unit arrested two gang members of a fake invoicing syndicate who defrauded the exchequer of more than Rs. 690 crore.

Mr Vikas and Mr Manish, residents of Sirsa, Haryana, were arrested for issuing fake GST invoices in excess of Rs. 4,800 crore, said the Finance Ministry on Tuesday.

The accused had relocated to Nepal to evade capture but were nabbed by the tax officials after a tip off. They were found to be in possession of many incriminating documents and gadgets in the form of multiple laptops, smartphones, debit cards, PAN and Aadhar details of various people, and notary stamps.

"Based on evidence, hundreds of fake firms have been created on the basis of PAN and Aadhar cards of unknown persons whose data have been procured by a separate syndicate. The firms have been found to have created fake invoices in excess of Rs 4,814 crore," said the tax officials.

Officials claim the involvement of other people and companies cannot be ruled out as the scamsters were actively collaborating with other masterminds.

The case is connected to an earlier DGGI Gurugram arrest of Mr Kabir Kumar who was caught while fleeing at the airport and had been arrested for Input Tax Credit (ITC) fraud of Rs 527 crore.
