GUWAHATI, Jan 4 - The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) today questioned two Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers in connection with a multi-crore rupee tax evasion case. The CID has already registered a case against liquor baron Rajesh Jalan in this connection.

The investigators today questioned Shamser Singh, Deputy Commissioner, Nagaon, along with Ahmed Hussain, Divisional Commissioner of Lower Assam, at the CID headquarters.

Both Singh and Hussain had served as the Commissioner of Excise during which large-scale evasion of Value Added Tax and Excise Tax allegedly took place. Interestingly, it was Singh who had lodged the complaint with the CID in 2015.

Sources said that the case relates to transportation of liquor worth more than Rs 20 crore outside Guwahati without paying the VAT and Excise Tax. The CID has already questioned the then Excise Superintendent of Excise (Guwahati) Ajoy Bayan and then Deputy Superintendent Amarendra Nath.

Sources informed that both Bayan and Nath are key players in the entire episode related to tax evasion and will be questioned again. �Although both Bayan and Nath were issued summons, they did not turn up today citing some reasons. They will soon be questioned so that facts can be corroborated,� sources pointed out.

The investigation into the multi-crore rupee tax evasion case gained momentum after liquor baron Rajesh Jalan, owner of BG Bonded Warehouse, was arrested by the CID from Guwahati.
