CPM MLA Rakesh Singha highlighted the issue in the state assembly. In a development in the case, an FIR has been registered by the Police, according to a Times of India report.

The company reportedly defrauded the government of Rs 2,175.51 crore in value added tax (VAT). It has been accused of taking the central sales tax exemption by showing forged documents and failed to deposit VAT, said the TOI report quoting its sources in the excise and taxation department.
