Qualified Opinion As per SA 707. The auditor shall express a qualified opinion when: (a) The auditor, having obtained sufficient appropriate audit evidence, concludes that misstatements, individually or in the aggregate, are material, but not pervasive, to the financial statements; or (b) The auditor is unable to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence on which to base the opinion, but the auditor concludes that the possible effects on the financial statements of undetected misstatements, if any, could be material but not pervasive. In the present case auditor has evidence and this is a material statement, though not pervasive because its a cognizable offence and a very serious offence, which can affect the operations of company.And its auditor's responsibility to report non-compliance of statutory regulations
