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
