In Abhishek Singhal v. Union of India [S.B. CRL. Misc. Bail Application No. 6304 OF 2021 dated May 17, 2021] the present bail application has been filed under Section 439 of the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 (“Cr.P.C”) by Abhishek Singhal (“the Petitioner”) being arrested for offences under Section 32(1) (b)/(c)/(f), 4R/20, and 132(1)(i) of Central Goods and Services Tax Act, 2017 (“the CGST Act”).

The Petitioner being a Chartered Accountant (“CA”) has been booked under the charge of wrongfully passing of Input Tax Credit (“ITC”) by creating 38 fake firms wherein he was absconding for about one year and has consequently been in custody since February 19, 2021.

The Hon’ble High Court of Rajasthan dismissing the bail application noted that the Petitioner failed to appear before the Department when the notices were issued to him. Even after the complaint was filed before the Trial Court, the Petitioner remained absconded. For the reasons mentioned, the High Court dismissed the bail application.
