Bizarre! Two MP men clueless how millions came in their bank accounts as IT comes calling
The money has long been withdrawn from their accounts, again without their knowledge, but by then there're already in for a major trouble.
Bhopal: They both are poor and hails from the same village in Madhya Pradesh. But of late they are making frequent visits to the income tax department.
What sets their case apart is due to a strange development in their life – someone deposited crores of rupees in their bank accounts without their knowledge!
The money has long been withdrawn from their accounts, again without their knowledge, but by then there're already in for a major trouble from the income tax department which has issued notices to them to prove their income source.
Rajnish Kumar Tiwari is a part-time electrician and Umadut Haldkar is a small-time employee of a private clinic. Both are BPL card holders and struggle to make ends meet, the Hindustan Times reported.
They are both being pressed by the income tax department to give an explanation for the crores of rupees they supposedly held in their accounts.
Tiwari’s accounts with the Katni branch of Axis Bank had Rs 16.93 crores while Haldkar’s account with the same branch had Rs 2.26 crores, the report said. Both have no clue how it came into their accounts between 2006 and 2009.
And they are equally clueless about who withdrew the staggering sums.
Police investigations have revealed that some people have opened the accounts in their names for illegal transactions.
According to the bank papers, both are named as company directors, which again they have no knowledge about.
