Indian Express reports that the director of Ind-Swift Laboratories Ltd, N R Munjal, was arrested by Chandigarh Police on December 3 in connection with a forgery and cheating case, along with the non-payment of tax dues. He was sent to judicial custody in an alleged tax evasion case tuning to Rs 5.09 crore.
The accused was produced in the court after a couple of days remand by the police. The prosecution did not seek any further remand and thus he was sent to judicial custody.
Munjal’s counsel moved an application to the court for bail, acting on which the court has instructed the police to act accordingly since Munjal suffers from a hernia and diabetes.
