Indore: A voluminous chargesheet running
into 1.50 lakh pages was on Wednesday submitted in a special court by
EOW against 24 persons, allegedly involved in a nine year old
tax scam, pegged at Rs 8 crore, reported in a local
agriculture produce marketing committee (APMC).
The massive chargesheet had to be carried on in three
vehicles and was produced in the special court of Gauri
Special Public Prosecutor for Economic Offences Wing
Ashlesh Sharma said the accused against whom the chargesheet
was filed included a retired government servant and they have
been charged with offences like corruption, fraud and forgery.
The EOW SP Manoj Kumar Singh said the tax scam took
place in local Krishi Upaj Mandi in 2002 and a case in this
connection was filed in 2004.
Three machines were pressed into service for
twenty-five days to make photocopies of the humongous
document, he added.
