Complainant “threatened” with heavy tax liabilities
The Central Bureau of Investigation has arrested R.P. Meena, Commissioner, Income Tax (Appeals) from his residence for allegedly demanding and accepting a bribe to settle a tax matter.
Mr. Meena is a 1987 batch Indian Revenue Service officer. He has previously worked as Additional Commissioner, Investigations and Company Assessment. He was arrested along with his chartered accountant U.P. Pai late on Friday night following a complaint and the subsequent laying of a trap.
“This is an unfortunate case. Bribe was being demanded by one of the highest ranking officer in the country,” CBI Joint Director Rishi Raj Singh told journalists on Saturday.
According to the CBI, Mr. Meena threatened the complainant, whose identity was not disclosed, with heavy tax liabilities if he failed to pay up the bribe of Rs.2.20 lakh. He was not clearing the complainant's file. He allegedly directed the complainant to pay the bribe amount to Mr. Pai. A meeting between Mr. Pai and the complainant was arranged at a restaurant at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus.
The CBI said it taped the negotiations between Mr. Meena, Mr. Pai and the complainant. It treated the currency notes with phenolphthalein powder. (The hand wash of the accused is used as evidence). At the restaurant, they kept a vigil as the complainant arrived to hand over the money to Mr. Pai. Mr. Pai was nabbed when he reportedly took the money.
