Is NDTV muzzling an honest officer who caught their Tax Fraud?

Corporate houses cheating on taxes is always a big ticket story for Indian Media. There was much brouhaha in the Media when a list of people holding Swiss Accounts was released. Although some of these accounts could have been legal, holding legal money, media went overboard with the coverage of this story, simply because Tax Frauds, Black Money etc help in getting TRPs. But Alas, NDTV’s own alleged tax fraud in connivance with Chidambaram has gone completely unreported. Is no media house aware of this? Is this some nuclear secret?

Luckily for us S Gurumurthy, a well-known Chartered Accountants and corporate advisor has laid bare NDTV’s crooked ways at blackmailing an Income Tax Officer who has detected the tax fraud. Here are his tweets:

The names of the 2 lady Income Tax officials are Sumana Sen and Ashima Neb. Sumana Sen’s husband Abhisar Sharma was employed with NDTV as a senior journalist, when Sen is alleged to have favoured NDTV in a Tax case, in exchange for a Rs 1 crore holiday.

In the tax assessment case of Abhisar Sharma, Rs 43 lacs was added to his Income in lieu of holiday expenses borne by NDTV, his employer. This, all-expenses-paid holiday is said to be the bribe given to Abhisar Sharma and his wife (Sumana Sen, who was the Income Tax Officer looking into NDTV case). The effect of this addition of Rs 43 lacs is that it proves Sumana Sen and Husband received undue benefits from NDTV. Now Sumana Sen has approached Supreme court with a PIL that Sanjay Srivastava (Income Tax Officer who nailed NDTV) is harassing her and hence The order of adding Rs 43 lacs to her and her husband’s Income should be quashed. If this addition is quashed, Sumana can claim she was never bribed.

If Gurumurthy’s comments are correct, this incident warrants an inquiry by the government.
