A Bengaluru businessman was arrested in Mumbai and jailed for six months here for allegedly defaulting on payment of Rs 11.94 crore as income tax and penalty arrears, said a top official on Tuesday.

"For the first time in Karnataka, a Bengaluru businessman was stopped on Monday at the Mumbai airport from leaving the country and arrested for allegedly not paying Rs 11.94 crore income tax and penalty arrears," said the Income Tax Department in a statement here without naming the defaulter.

A tax recovery officer sent the defaulter to the city central jail for six months after he failed to arrange for paying the tax arrears, including penalty and interest after he was brought from Mumbai under police custody.
