New Delhi: The Income Tax department has filed four new chargesheets against lawyer Gautam Khaitan. Khaitan is accused of a multi-crore VVIP chopper scam. These new chargesheets against Khaitan have been filed for tax evasion and to keep Singapore's unmade bank accounts. Official sources said Tuesday that four supplementary chargesheet or prosecution complaints have been filed in front of a special court last week.
The charge sheet against Khaitan has been filed under section 276 C (1) (intentional tax evasion) and section 277 (sworn-in) of the Income Tax Act. The department had filed at least nine chargesheets against Khaitan for possessing property abroad and not disclosing all assets and income, 2018 and a year ago.
Sources have informed the matter that the latest developments are attributed to the fact that the tax authorities have found new evidence that Khetan has three bank accounts of his own name in Singapore. These four charge sheets have been filed from the financial year 2009-10 to 2012-13. Sources claim that Khaitan has not disclosed ownership of these accounts before the tax authorities.
