Court reserves order on Dabur’s Pradip Burman plea in tax case
Burman, in his application, said he has filed an appeal in income tax tribunal against the assessment orders passed by the IT officer and till the pendency of the appeal, proceedings in these two cases be stayed. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Devendra Kumar Sharma reserved the order on the plea for February 19 after hearing arguments by the counsels for Burman and the IT Department. IT Department’s counsel Brijesh Garg opposed the plea saying it was not maintainable and Burman’s appeal against the assessment orders had no bearing on the two cases. Burman is facing prosecution in a complaint filed by IT Department alleging that he was holding foreign bank accounts which he had not disclosed in his income tax returns and there were undisclosed deposits.
