rusal of said statement, placed at pages 24-25 of PB, we observe that there are not repetitive transactions in the same scrips. The department has not disputed the fact that assessee has not used any borrowed funds for the purpose of purchase of shares and same is also fortified on perusal of profit and loss account, that no interest has been claimed towards expenses.
