Directorate General of GST Intelligence (DGGI) on Monday secured a week's extension of remand for Gutkha baron Kishore Wadhwani, the prime accused in evading the tax worth over Rs 300 crore. Judicial Magistrate First Class Brijesh Singh after hearing the prosecutors and defendants sent Wadhwani in judicial custody till June 30. The prosecution said the clique headed by Wadhwani had manufactured and transported a huge amount of pan masala and tobacco products. If he was granted bail, he would destroy evidence and escape the law. Wadhwani was the main beneficiary. He held a UAE residence visa and could go there, DGGI special public prosecutor Chandan Aron submitted. A Pakistani national who had sought refuge in India and his three local accomplices involved in siphoning the illicit funds have also been arrested. The court was told that the investigations had so far revealed evasion of over Rs 300 crore and the amount might go up. (IANS)
