The Gurugram Zonal Unit (GZU) of Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI) has arrested three persons under the provisions of the GST Act on charges of running multiple fake firms on the strength of fake documents in two different cases.
Two persons were arrested from Delhi on 5th and 9th October 2021 on charges of orchestrating a fake billing racket involving more than 20 fake firms where more than Rs 22 crore of the fraudulent input tax credit was taken thereby defrauding the exchequer.
Both persons were arrested and produced before CMM, Delhi, and were subsequently sent to 14 days of Judicial Custody.
In another case of fake billing a resident of Pataudi, Haryana, was also arrested.
He was found to have a huge cache of incriminating documents like fake stamps of Government Departments, checkbooks and ATMs of multiple fake firms, toll receipt books, “Dharam Kanta” or Weighing station booklets, fictitious transporters booklets, etc.
The same was being used to show evidence of a fake supply of goods on which fake input tax credit was generated and passed on through these slew of fake firms.
Based on the evidence, the person was arrested on 23rd October 2021 under the provisions of the GST Act on charges of defrauding the Government of more than Rs 26 crore of GST.
The arrested person has been sent to 14 days of Judicial Custody.
