Aishwarya Rai Bachchan summoned by Enforcement Directorate in Panama Papers Case

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan summoned by Enforcement Directorate in Panama Papers Case.

As per reports, B-Town diva Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been summoned by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Panama papers. The probe agency called her for interrogating over allegations of stashing wealth abroad.

However, Ash had also been summoned earlier for questioning, but she had twice sought more time.

As per the investigation conducted by various media outlets including Indian publication The Indian Express, over 500 Indians figure on the Panama Papers’s list of offshore companies. The leaked documents also disclosed that Aishwarya and her family members were part of a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands, a tax haven, for almost three years. Moreover, the company shortened Aishwarya Rai’s name to A Rai for reasons of confidentiality. The company also changed Aishwarya’s status in the firm; from director to the shareholder.

Meanwhile, news agency PTI informed that the Enforcement Directorate issued notices to the Bachchan family asking them to explain their foreign remittances since 2004 under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) of the Reserve Bank of India.
