    Detecting a crime or a criminal is rather an easy act. But the real credit lies in punishing the offender of law. In these cases, I hope the Govt was able to realize the evaded tax money. Because, in many cases, as we all know, the tax offender gets away with the crime either by hiring smart auditors or lawyers, who present the cases to the tax authorities in a way that much of the tax amount that was not paid, is proved to be a genuine action or the tax offender tries best to convince the authorities to dismiss the case by paying them under the desk or doing some personal favors to them. This needs to be stopped. Of course, not all officers are corrupt. In fact, many do their job honestly. But the bunch who are working against the system, that is to say working against the country, needs to be tracked down and penalised along with the tax offenders.
