2023 (1) TMI 784 - DSC - GST
Seeking grant of bail - Fraudulent availment of ITC - non-existent firms - bail application opposed on the ground of previous involvement and non-cooperative behaviour of the applicant/accused - HELD THAT:- Huge amount of passing of fraudulent ITC through non-existent firms has been alleged against the applicant who is not cooperating in the investigations also. The previous involvement of the accused in similar type of offences is also brought to the notice although which has not been denied by the applicant but submitted that the present case only deals with respect to the said period only for which he has already been granted bail. It has been contradicted by the department by saying that previous case qua the arrest and investigation was upto 2019 whereas investigation in the present case was carried out for subsequent period of time. Non filing of the complaint till date, as averred by the Ld. Defence counsel, is not tenable at this stage.
The present case is not a fit case to grant anticipatory bail to the applicant - The application stands dismissed.
