Central Goods and Service Tax (CGST) department on Tuesday arrested chartered accountant Mukesh Ahuja for fraudulently availing input tax credit (ITC) of Rs 20 crore.

Ahuja was produced before a Raigad court and remanded to 14 days’ judicial custody.

Ahuja is the fourth person to be arrested in the investigation against E Shoppe for fraudulent availment of ITC.

Ahuja’s father is director of the firm but it is found that the former played a key role, an official said.

Commissioner Manpreet Arora said fake invoices were issued for sale and purchase without actual sale and movement of goods to defraud the exchequer.
