The assertion made by petitioner only meets with the bare denial in the counter affidavit and not a specific denial. It is simply stated “the contents of paras 24 to 26 are wrong and denied. Each and every averment made in these paras are specifically denied”. No attempt has been made to deal with the issue of authorisation enabling the VATO concerned to undertake the exercise of interception of the vehicle in question and to d .....

e trouble of discussing the circumstances under which the truck happened to be intercepted and the goods detained. What the Court has found in the present case is a complete non-application of mind by the VATO, not only to the facts and circumstances of the case but also to the requirement of the law. Therefore, the impugned detention order dated 10th September 2012 and the consequent order of assessment of tax and penalty are set aside. The amount deposited by the petitioner by way of tax and p .....

Secondly, it is asserted that detention could have been ordered only if the consignment was not accompanied by proper documents, whereas in the prese .....

x. The further grounds urged are that the officer who detained the goods was himself the officer who assessed the tax and imposed penalty. It is stated that since the detention of the goods, passing of the detention order and imposition of penalty are entirely without the authority of law, the Court should exercise its powers under Article 226 to quash the impugned orders. 8. Pursuant to the notice issued in this petition on 14th December 2012, a counter affidavit as been filed by the Respondent .....

It is stated that the letter submitted on 13th September 2012 on behalf of the Petitioner to the Additional Commissioner was without any authority and therefore was not acted upon.

However, for the reasons indicated hereinbelow the Court finds that the Respondents have acted without jurisdiction and in gross abuse of the powers under the DVAT Act. Therefore the Court is constrained to invoke its power under Article 226 of the Constitution. 10.

In other words, no reasons have been indicated as to why an assessment was being made of tax, interest and penalty. There is no noting or discussion of the submissions made before the VATO. 11.

In other words, there is nothing to indicate, from either the detention order or the impugned notice of assessment and penalty that the VATO had applied his mind to the facts and circumstances under which the vehicle and the goods in question were seized. To say the least, this is the most unsatisfactory manner of dealing with the interception of goods and the consequent assessment of tax and penalty. Earlier too, this Court has on several occasions expres .....

While an effort has been made in the counter affidavit to summarize the statements that were made before the VATO, the impugned order itself does not note any of these contentions. In particular, the assertion now made that at the time when the vehicle was intercepted, it was moving on Shahdara road and not stationary, is not mentioned in the impugned order. In the facts and circumstances, the Petitioner is justified .....
