By IndianMandarins 07 Dec 2019

In an unprecedented move, the CBI has registered a case against sitting Allahabad High Court Judge Justice Shri Narayan Shukla for his alleged involvement of accepting bribe in lieu of giving a favourable verdict for a Lucknow-based medical college.

Justice Shukla has been named as prime accused along with retired HC Judge IM Quddusi, who was earlier arrested in September 2017. After registering the latest case in its larger alleged judicial corruption probe, the CBI teams on November 6 morning raided residences of Justice Shukla in Lucknow, Justice Quddusi’s residence in Delhi and five other places and recovered several incriminating documents related to investments and financial transactions.

The CBI confirmed that a case has been registered against Justices Shukla and Quddusi. In addition, the CBI has named an alleged conduit Bhawana Pandey, Bhagwan Prasad Yadav and Palash Yadav of Prasad Education trust, another alleged middleman Sudhir Giri and the trust.

Officials familiar with the FIR said Shukla, Quddusi and others have been booked for criminal conspiracy under sections 7, 8, 12 and 13 (2) and 13 (1) of the prevention of corruption act (which deal with accepting bribery, criminal misconduct).

Former Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, in July this year, gave CBI permission to register an FIR against Justice Shukla after the agency informed the apex court about the irregularities. Gogoi had also written to the Prime Minister Narendra Modi earlier this year recommending Shukla’s removal after an in-house panel had found him guilty of judicial irregularities.

srivastava's-nemesis-catches-up-with-him

Srivastava's nemesis catches up with him

By IndianMandarins 08 Jul 2019

The Karmic law of "as you sow, so you reap" has overtaken IT Commissioner S K Srivastava known for ruining the careers of many of his peers. In particular, he ruined the career of B K Jha, a 1983 batch IRS officer who has been known for his benevolence, professionalism, and simplicity. But Srivastava made an issue of something very petty challengeable in court. Seniors say that it was a very petty issue but somehow Jha's empanelment as PCCIT was marred.

 

Further, the empanelment of 1999 batch IRS IT officers is still on hold as he had implicated two lady officers Shumna and Ashima Neb. Due to these cases, the entire batch has been suffering despite the DPC. The 1999 batch is happy after his suspension under 56J in July first week.

 

Further, after the CBI and IT raid at 13 places associated with Srivastava, cadre officers feel a sigh of relief. Srivastava had even dragged the Finance Ministry in many controversies. He was considered such a nuisance that various senior even counseled Indianmandarins not to pick up cudgels against him.

 

As Srivasatava's deeds reached the critical threshold of Karma, his nemesis set in. 


Last week, the CBI registered a case U/s 120-B, 420, 468 of IPC and Section 7 of P.C.Act 1988 (As amended in 2018), against the then Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeal)-I, Noida with the additional charge of Commissioner of Income Tax (Appeal)-II Noida and others.

 

A CBI release said that it was alleged that the accused while posted as CIT (A)-I Noida with the additional charge of CIT (A)-II, Noida purportedly decided about 104 Income Tax appeals in the month of December 2018, while they were actually decided in the month of June 2019. The said accused allegedly passed orders in 13 cases which were beyond his jurisdiction and the orders passed in the appeals were uploaded in the Income Tax ITBA system (using his RSA token) between 11/06/2019 to 13/06/2019, after demission of office by the said Commissioner. It was further alleged that the dispatch records of the office were also manipulated to allude towards dispatch of the orders on 7/06/2019, whereas they were actually dispatched on 14/06/2019.

 

The release added that searches have been conducted at the residence and office of the then Commissioner of Income Tax which have led to the recovery of incriminating documents, articles and electronic evidence. Apart from this, jewelry worth Rs.2.47 crore(approx); Cash amount of Rs.16.14 lakh (approx); watches worth Rs.10 lakh (approx) and balance of more than Rs.1.30 crore(approx) in bank accounts of the accused and his family members were found. A Bank locker surfaced during the investigation is being operated. Searches have also been carried out at the premises of certain other private persons.

It said further investigation is continuing.
