Aishwarya Rai Bachchan appears before ED

New Delhi, Dec 20 (PTI):
Actor Aishwarya Rai Bachchan on Monday appeared before the Enforcement Directorate (ED) here for questioning in a case linked to the 2016 ‘Panama Papers’ global tax leaks case, official sources said. The 48-year-old daughter-in-law of superstar Amitabh Bachchan is being questioned and her statement is being recorded under the provisions of the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA). The actor has also submitted some documents to the agency when she appeared before the agency at its office near India Gate. Dubbed ‘Panama Papers’, an investigation of a stockpile of records from Panamanian legal firm Mossack Fonseca by the Washington-based International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) in 2016 had named several world leaders and celebrities who allegedly stashed away money abroad in offshore companies. Some of them are stated to be holding valid overseas accounts. The leaks tranche had a total of 426 India-linked cases. The ED has been probing the case linked to the Bachchans since 2016-17.
