DIRECTORATE OF Enforcement in Chandigarh zone has registered an Enforcement Case Information Report (ECIR) on the alleged multi-crore money laundering and tax evasion cases in Haryana after going through various FIRs filed in Gurgaon, Jhajjar, Kaithal, Sirsa and other districts of Haryana.
“Some of the firms to whom the firms of Haryana purportedly sold items were reportedly suspected to be bogus by the concerned commercial tax officers of other states in their verification reports. It clearly indicates that the dealers are intentionally not paying the tax with the support of proper planning by showing the false inter-state sales on bogus documents and causing loss to the government exchequer,” said ED after the investigation.

A petition filed by Kaithal resident Raghbir Singh and Ajmer (Rajasthan) resident Shiv Sawhney seeking CBI and ED probe into various tax evasion cases is pending before the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Petitioners’ counsel Pradeep Rapria said, “Though the ECIR was registered by ED on August 19, the fact has not been brought to the notice of the court yet.” The case will come up for hearing on February 15.

“Some of the firms have taken a lot of refund amounts and claimed bogus inputs from the government exchequer on the basis of inter-state sales of items against C/F forms by issuing bogus bills. Thus, this systematic crime has caused a wrongful loss to the state of Haryana,” reads the ECIR. “From the facts and circumstances of the case narrated above, the offence of money laundering is clearly suspected. The consequent and incidental proceeds of crime, which have been generated and further laundered, need to be investigated,” it added.
However, in the petition pending with HC, Rapria had submitted that earlier on the basis of the petitioner’s complaint, Haryana Lokayukta had handed over the probe to a special investigation team.
