Injury- A fiction on Anti-Dumping by Ashok Bhasin


Injury - a fiction!Injury - the latest book written by a Domain Expert in Indirect Taxes Mr Ashok Bhasin is a fiction on Anti-Dumping duty .Published by Har Anand Publications Pvt Ltd,New Delhi; the book is reasonably priced at Rs.295.

The imaginative mind of the author has created an interesting fiction which looks like a real story revolving around the smuggler, DRI and the Advocates.

The book is full of so much suspense that once you start it ; you cannot leave it till you finish it.

The book will be an enlightening reading for the investigating agencies, Advocates, taxman and taxpayer and even for a layman.

In December 2002, the Indian government imposed anti-dumping duty on CFLs imported from China or Hongkong. Three persons plotted the import of CFLs from Hongkong through Indonesia, in order to avoid the anti-dumping duty. They succeeded and saved forty-two crore of rupees.

DRI, the premier intelligence agency got suspicious. They collected intelligence and started getting closer to catching the culprits. The two out of three culprits were arrested, the third being in Hongkong was out of reach. The case came in the hands of two lawyers who defended the accused. One of them, N. Anand was an authority on anti-dumping and the other, Raju George was a beginner. They played their cards well and got the persons bailed out.

Reddy, the senior intelligence officer was not convinced. He was not satisfied with the profit sharing of the huge money involved. He had a faint idea that some influential person was there behind the whole operation. Gradually he came to know that the professional charges on behalf of one of the accused were being paid by someone else and not by the accused. Who? Who was the person, who had actually, monitored and executed the plan. Ultimately, Reddy tracks him down
