Bangalore, (Aryavarth) The Hon’ble Karnataka High Court, while giving justice to the common man, has dismissed the petition of the Income Tax Department, in which the Income Tax Department has sought to quash the investigation of their unreasonable beating conduct against its officers.
The case pertains to a I-T raid (August 2019) at the local offices of A – One Steel Group, a Bangalore-based iron manufacturer, where employees were beaten up by Income Tax officials during the raids. Some employees had to be hospitalized on the spot. An employee named Pawan was badly slapped, causing an internal injury to his ear and blood clots. Along with this, his hearing ability decreased.
