DRI files case against 15 people for evading Rs 3 billion in revenue

KATHMANDU: The Department of Revenue Investigation (DRI) has filed a tax avoidance case in the Kathmandu district court against a group of 15 people charged with evading approximately Rs 3 billion in revenue by producing fake invoices.
The complaint has demanded that the group of the people be fined two fold of Rs 2.98 billion equivalent to the amount of revenue evaded, and be imprisoned for three years. It named Gopal Prasad Bhattarai of Inaruwa-9 in Sunsari, now living in Bhaktapur and Rimbardhoj Karki as main defendants and Lalitraj Kandanwa, Gauri Mainali, auditors Jagannath Gurung, Sharan Bahadur Khadka and Tankanath Nepal as the colluders.
Bhattarai and Karki have been found, during an investigation, to have registered eight firms in the name of Binod Dhamala, Santosh Kumar Karki, Megh Bahadur Shrestha, Dhan Bahadur Bhomjan, Bharat Bahadur Dumjan, Bimal Putuwar, Narayan Koirala (Damai) and Parbati Suchikar and have evaded the amount of revenue by producing fake invoices, said director general of the Department Dirgharaj Mainali.
