It seems that the Bollywood celebrities are continuing to be on the radar of the Enforcement Directorate (ED). Whether it’s Jacqueline Fernandez or Nora Fatehi everyone is visiting the ED office for some case. Now, the latest A-list Bollywood actress to join the list is Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. The diva has always maintained a dignified image in front of the media and has tried her best to stay away from controversies.
However, now the ED office on Monday summoned the actress in a money laundering case related to ‘Panama Papers Leak’. According to India.com reports, the agency has registered a money laundering case under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002 (PMLA) in the matter.
The 48-year-year-old actor was reportedly asked to appear before the ED on Monday at the Loknayak Bhawan in Delhi. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan was then grilled for about six hours by the Enforcement Directorate (ED). The actress was questioned by the ED in regard to the Panama Papers global tax leak case that surfaced in the year 2016.
The agency has issued notices to the Bachchan family asking them to clarify their foreign transfers since the year 2004 under the Liberalised Remittance Scheme (LRS) of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Some documents have already been submitted by the Bachchan family to the ED. At the same time, the federal probe agency also has some other occurrences of alleged irregularities linked to the family under its scanner.
Another report suggests that the ED officials have already prepared a list of questions to interrogate the actor over allegations of stashing wealth abroad. However, she has sought more time to appear before the agency.
According to PTI, 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.
