Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru (SP)

Bengaluru, Dec 7: The case relating to recovery of Rs 1.97 crore in cash from the car belonging to advocate, H M Siddharth, in Vidhana Soudha premises witnessed a new twist on Wednesday December 6. The state high court instructed the police to hand over this cash to income tax department (IT).

The case relates to an incident in which Rs 1.97 crore cash was found kept in the boot of a car belonging to an advocate, Siddharth, near Vidhana Soudha. Police personnel of Vidhana Soudha station had seized the car and cash, besides undertaking investigation. IT department, which wanted to find out the real source of this cash, had approached additional chief metropolitan magistrate court seeking to hand over this cash to them as they said that the said cash was not backed by proper documentary evidences. The court had dismissed this petition, after which the IT department had approached the HC.

The single judge bench of the HC presided over by Justice K N Phanindra, which heard the petition filed by deputy director of investigation department of income tax department, S Janardhan, directed the police to hand over this cash to IT department. The HC said that if it was found later that the money was to be returned to police department, IT department has to refund it with interest and that an indemnity bond will have to be executed in this connection before cash is handed over.

    Lawyers are the biggest corrupt mafia in India, they loot like anything...
    They want everything in CASH.
    Lawyers should be forced to use POS machines in thier offices should allow clients to use Swipe cards, Cheques, e-payments etc...
    Biggest robbers are Lawyers... I hate Lawyers.

    The money was meant to handover to one of the Ministers. Why this fact was ignored. This fact should be investigated. Why this advocate has brought such a big amount in his car? Income Tax officials required to find out the source of income.

    The Central Government, pursuing all the wrong policies, and investing the remaining money in the Gujarat Bullet Train, has no money for even the tissue paper.

    So, whatever little is uncovered in India, must be handed over to the IT department.

    In other countries, the 'guilty' party pays the tax on the amount and possibly some fine, but the bankrupt Government of the Feku Maharaj wants the 100% of the found treasure.
