IT commissioner Shwetabh Suman got 7 years in jail for disproportionate assets and his 90-year-old mother, Gulab Devi got one year in jail.

Dehradun: A special CBI court here has sentenced a serving Income Tax Commissioner to seven years’ rigorous imprisonment in a 14-year-old disproportionate assets case.

CBI Special Judge Sujata Singh on Wednesday also awarded one year jail term to the officer Shwetabh Suman’s 90-year-old mother Gulab Devi besides sentencing his brother-in-law Arun Kumar Singh and his close aide Rajendra Vikram Singh to four years in prison after convicting them under IPC.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 3.50 crore on the IT Commissioner in the DA case after convicting him under various sections of the Prevention of Corruption Act.
