An IRS officer has been given a five-year jail term by a court here for accepting a bribe of Rs 8 lakh from a Delhi-based pharmaceutical company.
Special CBI judge Dinesh Kumar Sharma handed down the jail term to Satish Kumar, the then Additional Director (Investigation), Income Tax, at Meerut, after holding him guilty under various provisions of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
The court also imposed a cost of Rs 50,000 on the 1989 batch Indian Revenue System (IRS) official saying “if the corruption is done by the senior officers then it deserves special treatment.”
CBI had filed a charge sheet against Kumar on a complaint made in April 2006 by Ramesh Juneja, the managing director of Mankind Pharma Ltd, who alleged that the IRS officer had demanded Rs 30 lakh from him. “After negotiation, the bribe amount was reduced to Rs 10 lakh but only Rs 8 lakh was paid to Kumar,” the CBI said.
