Detailed Investigation and Arrests

The CID Crime teams, acting on intelligence reports, conducted thorough searches at the said location, uncovering a sophisticated network involved in generating fake GST bills. The primary suspect, Umang Vinod Darji, along with his associate Ravi Prakash Soni, were apprehended during the raids. According to the CID, Darji was the mastermind behind the operation, employing various accomplices to execute the scheme.

Modus Operandi

Darji and his team allegedly used counterfeit rubber stamps to produce fake bills for a variety of goods, including gold, silver, software, and cement. These fraudulent documents were then used by traders to claim input tax credit, thereby evading substantial amounts of GST. In return for these services, Darji charged a commission from the traders, generating illicit profits through this elaborate scam.

Impact and Next Steps

The bust highlights the ongoing efforts of CID Crime to combat financial fraud and protect the integrity of the GST system. Authorities are now delving deeper into the network to identify other possible participants and beneficiaries of the racket. Further investigations aim to trace the money trail and recover the defrauded amount.

The CID has assured that stringent actions will be taken against those involved, sending a strong message to fraudsters and reinforcing the commitment to uphold law and order.


The successful bust of this GST bogus billing racket underscores the vigilance and efficiency of CID Crime in tackling white-collar crimes. As the investigation progresses, more details are expected to emerge, shedding light on the extensive reach and impact of this fraudulent operation.
