Vasant Sathe’s son seeks docs in black money case
Former union minister Vasant Sathe’s son and daughter-in-law sought some documents in a Delhi court on Friday in a <g data-gr-id="18">blackmoney</g> case lodged against them by the Income Tax Department for allegedly not disclosing details of their joint Swiss bank account. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate (ACMM) Pritam Singh asked the IT Department to supply the deficient and legible documents to the <g data-gr-id="19">ex-minister’s</g> son Subhash Sathe and daughter-in-law Indrani Sathe.
“Put up for <g data-gr-id="17">supply</g> of documents/arguments on notice on August 17,” the court said. The couple was earlier granted bail by the court when they had appeared as accused in pursuance to its summons. They were summoned as accused after the court took cognizance of the IT Department’s complaint alleging that the couple had a joint account in HSBC Bank in Geneva with about $ 7 lakh (now valued at about Rs 4.44 crore).
The department claimed the couple has been interrogated by its investigation wing and they had admitted to the charges.
