KATHMANDU, Jan 29: The Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority  (CIAA) has filed another corruption case against suspended Director General of Inland Revenue Department Chuda Mani Sharma on Monday.

The CIAA issuing a press statement on Monday informed that the anti-graft body has registered a fresh charge sheet against DG Sharma on Monday at Special Court after a four-month investigation. It has been said that Sharma’s statements about the previous case led to the registration of the case.

In its document, the CIAA has claimed that Sharma along with his wife Kalpana Uprety Sharma has amassed property worth Rs 43 million illegally.

According to CIAA, Sharma could reveal the legitimate source of income of just Rs 36,372,161 from the time he joined government service till December 2016 even as investigations have shown that he spent Rs 79,327,085 during the period.

Sharma was suspended after the anti-corruption constitutional body filed a case against him, accusing him of embezzling the state funds while he was an official at the then Tax Settlement Commission.

The case is still sub-judice at the Court.
