[dropcap color=”#008040″ boxed=”yes” boxed_radius=”8px” class=”” id=””]C[/dropcap]entral Bureau of Investigation’s (CBI) preliminary investigation with the support of Income Tax department has unearthed illegalities and violations committed by two lady Income Tax officers, by helping New Delhi Television Ltd. (NDTV), where one of their spouse was working as a journalist. The CBI’s letter to Income Tax department shows that in August 2015, the agency had decided to register a case of preliminary enquiry against Shumana Sen (also spelt as Sumana Sen) for manipulations in NDTV’s income tax related matters. She is an IRS officer and was the Assessing Officer of the Income Tax circle of NDTV.

Her husband Abhisar Sharma was working with NDTV as a journalist cum anchor at an exorbitant salary. CBI also sent reminders to Income Tax department in March 2016 seeking some more documents in this case. Both communications are published at the end of this report.

CBI is also probing into the role of another lady Income Tax official Ashima Neb for NDTV account manipulations. According to the latest information sent by Income Tax to CBI, Shumana Sen is having a gross unaccounted income of Rs.7 crores ($1.046 million), and husband journalist Abhisar Sharma is having a gross unaccounted income of Rs.4.08 crores ($610,000). The IRS officer Ashima Neb’s gross unaccounted income comes to Rs.2.93 crores ($438,000).

CBI is expected to register a First Information Report (FIR) soon in this case against the two lady officers and also against NDTV under Prevention of Corruption Act and misuse of official position. This case was first exposed by senior Income Tax officer S K Srivastava and he was arm-twisted by the United Progressive Alliance (UPA) regime. Srivastava was hounded and several false cases were foisted on him. He was taken back into service by the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) regime.

Noted lawyer Ram Jethmalani and former Director General of Police (DGP) K P S Gill also took up the issues raised by Srivastava.

  1. It may be true but why only neutral media who doesn’t follow BJP agenda are targeted as if other channels/media are angels of Virtue in all respects.

  2. everybody works for money with one or other guy. So,maybe this so called media organisation is working for some petro dollar company as their’s voice.
    So,let all the proofs come out. What do you say?

  3. Pray that PM wakes up and take Economic Offences case out of FM and habnd it over to DR.Swamy like person for quick prosecution and conviction.

  4. The rot in our country’s administration is so deep that it’s impossible to differentiate the wheat from the chaff. Because of this, the common man and woman are being confused daily and the Indian culture to consider everybody as a fraud has only grown. None of these exposes have led to change in the Indian mentality of greed and cunning. Those of us who are not of that mind may be labelled ignorant, uninformed or vested interests! So who is the ideal citizen of this country? I wonder.

  5. Will Modiji do justice to the election promises ?or willl he be led to the slaughter house like a lamb by his FM ?

  6. I am aghast at the herculean effort needed to unearth such frauds and corrupt practices especially when the Govt of the day allows it!It is a wonder how such cases come out despite these obstacles. Kudos to those honest officers who go out of their way to find the truth. May they prosper.

  7. This entire NDTV regime is anti India,only favours Lashkar-e-congress and terrorist from Pakistan,I don’t understand can any Indian fall to such a low level where he becomes anti Indian,and favors Terrorism,they should all be treated like terrorist and given the right treatment

  8. This is the kind of news people want to know about. Thank you Pgurus.com.
    None of the main stream media reports this. NDTV and their corrupt journalists lectures people day in and day out thru’ their shows.
    Pgurus, please report NDTV and their self declared anti-national prestitute got any share in just unearthed J&K terror funding by ISI and PAK terror groups.
