Gurugram, Oct 30 (IANS) Two senior officials of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) were detained on Monday in connection with a property tax scam of Rs 600 crore, an official said.

An MCG official, not authorised to speak to the media, told IANS on the condition of anonymity that the Special Investigation Team (SIT) detained the two officials.
Police and other local administration officials refused to comment on the development.
Earlier, the case was handed over to police by MC Commissioner V. Umashanker but later the SIT was tasked with the probe.
The said scam came to light around three months ago when an MC Zonal Taxation Officer filed an FIR at the Sadar police station, listing out six properties for alleged tax evasion.
The case was registered under Sections 420 (cheating), 467 (forgery), 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) and 471 (using fraud document as genuine) of the Indian Penal Code at the DLF-2 police station. Six properties are located around DLF-2 and DLF-4, while one is in Sector 28.
A preliminary probe revealed the alleged frauds took place between August 2015 and April 2017.
