A Surti salesman, Lalit Tholiya, received an unexpected tax demand notice of Rs 48 lakh from the income tax department after undisclosed transactions amounting to a whopping Rs 10.58 crore came to the notice of tax officials. Tholiya immediately filed a case of forgery and cheating against unidentified persons. He claimed complete ignorance about the transactions and the bank accounts through which they were routed. He alleged that the bank accounts were opened in his name using his documents without his knowledge. The department deducted Rs 2.35 lakh from his bank account for not paying up the tax demand.
