The arrest of a lady of the erstwhile industrial family is heartening. Not that there are others with unaccounted money. But in this case, surely it must be old money that escaped the tax men as well as some bank that wrote off a loan to some Mafatlal company. All the NPA promoters seem to be rushing overseas to bring back their wealth, before someone publishes a list of people of Indian origin with bank accounts in Lichenstein and other taxfree steins. Sadly, this lady could not escape enemies within the house.
It is funny to see a lawyer pleading that "for a 'measly' 30 lakh duty evasion" why should the client be jailed? I do not see the difference between a pick pocket or a thief or someone who evades duties. In fact the tax evaders are the true scum of the earth, who pour misery on the salaried employees and this crime is the worst of all. If I get a chance, I will surely hang tax evaders. Do not waste your tears for crooked businessmen (ex or present). They are the true pick pockets and parasites.
